glu·cose-phos·phate i·som·er·ase

(glū'kōs-fos'fāt ī-sō'mĕr-ās),
An enzyme that catalyzes the interconversion of d-fructose 6-phosphate and d-glucose 6-phosphate; a part of glycolysis and gluconeogenesis; glucosephosphate isomerase deficiency is an inherited disorder resulting in liver glycogenesis and hemolytic anemia.

Experimental studies have shown that many glycolytic enzymes bind cytoskeletal proteins reversibly including lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), fructose-1,6-bisphosphate aldolase (aldolase), glyceraldehydes 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), 3-phosphoglycerate kinase, glucose isomerase, phosphofructokinase, and pyruvate kinase (3,4) and that the interaction may be electrostatic in nature (3).
