6-Phospho-D-gluconate:NAD(P)+ 2-oxidoreductase

6-Phosphogluconate Dehydrogenase

Dehydrogenase, 6-Phosphogluconate

Dehydrogenase, Phosphogluconate

An enzyme of the oxidoreductase class that catalyzes the reaction 6-phospho-D-gluconate and NADP+ to yield D-ribulose 5-phosphate, carbon dioxide, and NADPH. The reaction is a step in the pentose phosphate pathway of glucose metabolism. (From Dorland, 27th ed) EC
