Summaries for G6PC2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for G6PC2 Gene

  • This gene encodes an enzyme belonging to the glucose-6-phosphatase catalytic subunit family. These enzymes are part of a multicomponent integral membrane system that catalyzes the hydrolysis of glucose-6-phosphate, the terminal step in gluconeogenic and glycogenolytic pathways, allowing the release of glucose into the bloodstream. The family member encoded by this gene is found in pancreatic islets and does not exhibit phosphohydrolase activity, but it is a major target of cell-mediated autoimmunity in diabetes. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants of this gene have been described, but their biological validity has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for G6PC2 Gene

G6PC2 (Glucose-6-Phosphatase, Catalytic, 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with G6PC2 include diabetes mellitus, insulin-dependent.

Genetic variations in G6PC2 define the fasting plasma glucose levels quantitative trait locus 1 (FGQTL1) [MIM:612108]. The normal fasting plasma glucose level in the plasma is defined as less than 100 mg per deciliter (5.55 mmol per liter). Higher fasting plasma glucose levels predict type 2 diabetes in young adults and increases the risk of mortality
