Phosphoglucose Isomerase (PGI) is an enzyme crucial for the interconversion of D-glucose 6-phosphate and D-fructose 6-phosphate. PGI is responsible for the second step of glycolysis and is involved in glucogenesis. It is highly conserved in bacteria and eukaryotes. It is used in sugar assays to convert fructose to glucose . Product 9544 is type XI and is from rabbit muscle. It is useful in enzyme systems requiring low sulfate.
Phosphoglucose Isomerase fuctions as an isomerase, neuroleukin, autocrine motility factor, and a differentiation and maturation mediator . It is responsible for the photosynthetic reduction of carbon.
1000, 5000 units in glass bottle
Essentially sulfate-free powder containing citrate buffer salts
One unit will convert 1.0 µmole of D-fructose 6-phosphate to D-glucose 6-phosphate per min at pH 7.4 at 25 °C.
