Summaries for G6PD Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for G6PD Gene

  • This gene encodes glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase. This protein is a cytosolic enzyme encoded by a housekeeping X-linked gene whose main function is to produce NADPH, a key electron donor in the defense against oxidizing agents and in reductive biosynthetic reactions. G6PD is remarkable for its genetic diversity. Many variants of G6PD, mostly produced from missense mutations, have been described with wide ranging levels of enzyme activity and associated clinical symptoms. G6PD deficiency may cause neonatal jaundice, acute hemolysis, or severe chronic non-spherocytic hemolytic anemia. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for G6PD Gene

G6PD (Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with G6PD include Anemia, Nonspherocytic Hemolytic, Due To G6pd Deficiency and Glucosephosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Sulfation Biotransformation Reaction. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and carbohydrate binding. An important paralog of this gene is H6PD.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for G6PD Gene

  • Catalyzes the rate-limiting step of the oxidative pentose-phosphate pathway, which represents a route for the dissimilation of carbohydrates besides glycolysis. The main function of this enzyme is to provide reducing power (NADPH) and pentose phosphates for fatty acid and nucleic acid synthesis.

  • Anemia, non-spherocytic hemolytic, due to G6PD deficiency (NSHA) [MIM:300908]: A disease characterized by G6PD deficiency, acute hemolytic anemia, fatigue, back pain, and jaundice. In most patients, the disease is triggered by an exogenous agent, such as some drugs, food, or infection. Increased unconjugated bilirubin, lactate dehydrogenase, and reticulocytosis are markers of the disorder. Although G6PD deficiency can be life-threatening, most patients are asymptomatic throughout their life. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12524354, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1303180, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1303182, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1536798, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1611091, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1889820, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1945893, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20007901, ECO:0000269 PubMed:26479991, ECO:0000269 PubMed:2836867, ECO:0000269 PubMed:2912069, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7858267, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7959695, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8193373, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8490627, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8533762, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8733135, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9452072}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Deficiency of G6PD is associated with hemolytic anemia in two different situations. First, in areas in which malaria has been endemic, G6PD-deficiency alleles have reached high frequencies (1% to 50%) and deficient individuals, though essentially asymptomatic in the steady state, have a high risk of acute hemolytic attacks. Secondly, sporadic cases of G6PD deficiency occur at a very low frequencies, and they usually present a more severe phenotype. Several types of NSHA are recognized. Class-I variants are associated with severe NSHA; class-II have an activity <10% of normal; class-III have an activity of 10% to 60% of normal; class-IV have near normal activity.
