D-Glucose 1,6-bisphosphate potassium salt hydrate ≥99.0% (TLC) Sigma 49225
α-D-Glucose 1,6-bisphosphate is used in the identification, differentiation and characterization of α-phosphoglucomutase(s), β-phosphoglucomutase(s) and α- and β-hexoglucomutase(s).
Metabolite formed via the activity of Glucose-1,6-biphosphate synthase. Glucose-1,6-biphosphate (G-1,6-BP) acts as an inhibitor of hexokinase function and an activator of phosphofructokinase-1 and pyruvate kinase. G-1,6-BP also acts as a coenzyme for phosphoglucomutate and a cofactor for phosphopentomutase.
