MetaCyc Enzyme: glucose-6-phosphatase

Gene: G6PC Accession Number: HS05538 (MetaCyc)

Synonyms: G6PT, G-6-Pase, G6Pase, G6Pase-alpha, glucose-6-phosphatase alpha

Species: Homo sapiens

Summary:
Glucose-6-phosphatase (G6Pase) is an integral membrane protein of the endoplasmic reticulum that catalyzes the hydrolysis of D-glucose 6-phosphate to D-glucose and orthophosphate [Ghosh02]. There are three known isoforms of the enzyme glucose-6-phosphatase, glucose-6-phosphatase 2 and glucose-6-phosphatase 3. It is a key enzyme in glucose homeostasis, functioning in both gluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis.

Studies of G6Pase in the primary gluconeogenic tissue of liver and kidney revealed that G6Pase forms a complex with the glucose-6-phosphate transporter and their activities are tightly coupled [Lei96]. Defects in the glucose-6-phosphate transporter causes glycogen storage disease type 1b [Hiraiwa99]. Defects in the enzyme cause glycogen storage disease type Ia (von Gierke disease) [Lei93][Shieh02].
