D-Glucose 6-phosphate sodium salt


Synonym: D(+)-Glucopyranose 6-phosphate sodium salt, G-6-P Na, Robison ester



Biochem/physiol Actions

In cells, D-glucose 6-phosphate (G6P) is generated when glucose is phosphorylated by hexokinase or glucokinase or by the conversion of glucose-1-phosphate by phosphoglucomutase during glycogenolysis. G6P lies at the beginning of both glycolysis and the pentose phosphate pathways. It also can be stored as glycogen when blood glucose levels are high.


Non-hygroscopic, and very stable to atmospheric moisture at room temperature, unlike the disodium salt.


1, 5, 25 g in poly bottle

500 mg in poly bottle


D-glucose-6-phosphate sodium can be used as an energy source for Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Aerobic Glycolysis and the Warburg Effect

The Warburg effect is the enhanced conversion of glucose to lactate observed in tumor cells, even in the presence of normal levels of oxygen. Otto Heinrich Warburg demonstrated in 1924 that cancer ce...
