An enzyme that catalyzes the reversible reaction, α-d-glucose 1-phosphate ⇋ α-d-glucose 6-phosphate, with glucose 1,6-bisphosphate a necessary cofactor; one of the steps in glycogenolysis.


a glycolytic pathway enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of glucose-1-phosphate to glucose-6-phosphate in a reversible reaction.

a minor histocompatibility system in dogs; genetic polymorphism of this enzyme has been associated with graft-versus-host reactions.

In the Beutler enzyme spot test, GALT enzyme activity is monitored with the aid of phosphoglucomutase and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) and visualization of the fluorescence of reduced [NADP.
The Beutler enzyme spot test utilizes the phosphoglucomutase, G6PD, and 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase present naturally in RBCs as the enzyme reactions subsequent to the GALT enzyme.
