SYSTEMATIC NAME
IUBMB Comments
6-phospho-D-gluconate:NADP+ 2-oxidoreductase (decarboxylating)
The enzyme participates in the oxidative branch of the pentose phosphate pathway, whose main purpose is to produce NADPH and pentose for biosynthetic reactions. Highly specific for NADP+. cf. EC 1.1.1.343, phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (NAD+-dependent, decarboxylating).
