GeneCards Summary for FBP2 Gene
FBP2 (Fructose-Bisphosphatase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FBP2 include Fructose-1,6-Bisphosphatase Deficiency. Among its related pathways are AMP-activated Protein Kinase (AMPK) Signaling and Regulation of lipid metabolism Insulin signaling-generic cascades. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include phosphoric ester hydrolase activity and fructose 1,6-bisphosphate 1-phosphatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is FBP1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FBP2 Gene
Catalyzes the hydrolysis of fructose 1,6-bisphosphate to fructose 6-phosphate in the presence of divalent cations and probably participates in glycogen synthesis from carbohydrate precursors, such as lactate.
