Enzymatic Method for Determining Glucose-6-Phosphate (Glucose-6-Phosphate Assay)

This assay protocol is suitable for the colorimetric detection of Glucose-6-Phosphate (G6P) in cell and tissue culture supernatants, urine, plasma, serum, and other biological samples using the Glucose-6-Phosphate Assay Kit (MAK014).  G6P concentration is determined by a coupled enzyme assay, which results in a colorimetric (450 nm) product, proportional to the G6Ppresent. This kit has a linear range of detection between 0.2–1.0 nmole.
