Gene information for H6PD (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID9563
Official gene symbolH6PD
Full namehexose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (glucose 1-dehydrogenase)
Gene summaryThere are 2 forms of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase. G form is X-linked and H form, encoded by this gene, is autosomally linked. This H form shows activity with other hexose-6-phosphates, especially galactose-6-phosphate, whereas the G form is specific for glucose-6-phosphate. Both forms are present in most tissues, but H form is not found in red cells. [provided by RefSeq]
