ABSTRACT : Fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase (FBP1) is a key regulatory enzyme of gluconeogenesis that catalyzes the hydrolysis of fructose-1,6-bisphosphate to generate fructose-6-phosphate and inorganic phosphate.
Under standard reaction conditions that included 1 mM ATP and concentrations of fructose-6-phosphate ranging from 0.
