Summaries for H6PD Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for H6PD Gene

  • There 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, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for H6PD Gene

H6PD (Hexose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (Glucose 1-Dehydrogenase)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with H6PD include cortisone reductase deficiency 1 and hyperandrogenism due to cortisone reductase deficiency. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Carbon metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include carbohydrate binding and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase activity. An important paralog of this gene is G6PD.
