|Calculated MW||61.4 kDa (515 aa, 1-515 aa)|
|Other Names||Glucose-6-phosphate 1-dehydrogenase, Zwf.|
|Source||Hi-5 cells, Baculovirus system|
|Results||Specific activity is > 7 units/ml obtained by measuring the increase of NADPH in absorbance at 340 nm resulting from the reduction of NAD or NADP. One unit oxidizes 1.0 µmole D-glucose-6-phosphate to 6-phospho-Dgluconate per min in the presence of beta-NADP at pH 7.4 at 25ºC.|

Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase is the rate-limiting enzyme of the pentose phosphate pathway, a metabolic pathway that supplies reducing energy to cells by maintaining the level of NADPH. G6PD converts glucose-6-phosphate into 6-phosphoglucono-delta-lactone and simultaneously produce NADPH. The NADPH in turn maintains the level of glutathione in these cells that helps protect the red blood cells against oxidative damage. G6PD deficiency cause acute hemolytic anemia. Recombinant human G6PD protein, fused to His-tag at N-terminus, was expressed in Hi-5 cells using baculovirus expression system and purified by using conventional chromatography.
