Behaviour of Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase during Erythroid Maturation
Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD; D-glucose-6-phosphate: NADP+ oxidoreductase, EC 1.1.1 49) is the first enzyme of the hexose monophosphate pathway and provides NADPH essential for a variety of biosynthetic and detoxifying reactions (1).
