ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
quinoprotein glucose dehydrogenase (PQQ, quinone).
Alternative Name(s)
D-glucose:(pyrroloquinoline-quinone) 1-oxidoreductase.
glucose dehydrogenase (PQQ-dependent).
glucose dehydrogenase (pyrroloquinoline-quinone).
quinoprotein D-glucose dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
a ubiquinone + D-glucose <=> a ubiquinol + D-glucono-1,5-lactone
  • Integral membrane protein containing PQQ as prosthetic group.
  • It also contains bound ubiquinone and Mg(2+) or Ca(2+).
  • Electron acceptor is membrane ubiquinone but usually assayed with phenazine methosulfate.
  • Like in all other quinoprotein alcohol dehydrogenases the catalytic domain has an 8-bladed 'propeller' structure.
  • It occurs in a wide range of bacteria.
  • Catalyzes a direct oxidation of the pyranose form of D-glucose to the lactone and thence to D-gluconate in the periplasm.
  • Oxidizes other monosaccharides including the pyranose forms of pentoses.
  • Formerly EC
