Gene: G6pd (glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: G6pd
Name: glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase
Description: Exhibits NADP binding activity; glucose binding activity; and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of cell growth involved in cardiac muscle cell development; pentose-phosphate shunt, oxidative branch; and positive regulation of calcium ion transmembrane transport via high voltage-gated calcium channel. Localizes to cytosol and nucleus. Used to study cataract and transient cerebral ischemia. Biomarker of several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); hepatic encephalopathy; hyperhomocysteinemia; obesity; and phenylketonuria. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including anemia (multiple); cerebrovascular disease; favism; malaria (multiple); and neonatal jaundice. Orthologous to human G6PD (glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase); PARTICIPATES IN pentose phosphate pathway; pentose phosphate pathway - oxidative phase; ribose 5-phosphate isomerase deficiency pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; (R)-noradrenaline; (S)-naringenin.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
