(fos'fō-glū'kŏ-nāt dē-hī'drō-jen-ās),
6-phosphogluconic dehydrogenase; an enzyme catalyzing the reaction of 6-phospho-d-gluconate and NAD(P)+ to form 6-phospho-2-keto-d-gluconate and NAD(P)H; a deficiency of this enzyme has been reported, but no cell disruption has been observed.

The pathway can be considered in two phases: the irreversible oxidative phase comprising the reactions catalyzed by glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase, lactonase and 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase; and the reversible, non-oxidative phase involving the rest of the pathway, then: Regulation of the pentose phosphate pathway: The flow of metabolites through the pathway is regulated at the glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase reaction and the 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase by the availability of NADP +.
The goal of this study was to check the activities of G6PD 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase glutathione reductase in patients with IDA.
The two strains differ by the mobility of a single isoenzyme 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (6PGDH) as detected by isoenzyme characterization (15), which is considered as the gold standard in species diagnosis.

1995) studied the isozyme systems: isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH), phosphoglucoisomerase (PGI), phosphoglucomutase (PGM), shikimate dehydrogenase (SKDH), 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (6-PGD), leucine aminopeptidase (LAP) and malate dehydrogenase (MDH) in a total of 36 sweet, sour and ground cherries, verifying that this technique was efficient in detect polymorphism among them.
