Fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase 1, a gluconeogenesis regulatory enzyme, catalyzes the hydrolysis of fructose 1,6-bisphosphate to fructose 6-phosphate and inorganic phosphate. Fructose-1,6-diphosphatase deficiency is associated with hypoglycemia and metabolic acidosis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for FBP1 Gene
FBP1 (Fructose-Bisphosphatase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FBP1 include Fructose-1,6-Bisphosphatase Deficiency and Hypoglycemia. Among its related pathways are Glucose metabolism and Fructose and mannose metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and phosphoric ester hydrolase activity. An important paralog of this gene is FBP2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for FBP1 Gene
Catalyzes the hydrolysis of fructose 1,6-bisphosphate to fructose 6-phosphate in the presence of divalent cations, acting as a rate-limiting enzyme in gluconeogenesis. Plays a role in regulating glucose sensing and insulin secretion of pancreatic beta-cells. Appears to modulate glycerol gluconeogenesis in liver. Important regulator of appetite and adiposity; increased expression of the protein in liver after nutrient excess increases circulating satiety hormones and reduces appetite-stimulating neuropeptides and thus seems to provide a feedback mechanism to limit weight gain.
