Purchase

Description

Packaging

1000, 5000 units in glass bottle

Unit Definition

One unit will convert 1.0 μmole of D-fructose 6-phosphate to D-glucose 6-phosphate per min at pH 7.4 at 25 °C.

Physical form

Essentially sulfate-free powder containing citrate buffer salts

Application

Phosphoglucose Isomerase (PGI) is an enzyme crucial for the interconversion of D-glucose 6-phosphate and D-fructose 6-phosphate. PGI is responsible for the second step of glycolysis and is involved in glucogenesis. It is highly conserved in bacteria and eukaryotes. It is used in sugar assays to convert fructose to glucose . Product 9544 is type XI and is from rabbit muscle. It is useful in enzyme systems requiring low sulfate.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Phosphoglucose Isomerase fuctions as an isomerase, neuroleukin, autocrine motility factor, and a differentiation and maturation mediator . It is responsible for the photosynthetic reduction of carbon.
