About Phosphoglucoisomerase

Phosphoglucoisomerase are group of enzymes of isomerases family (EC, with very wide range of molecular weight, from 40 to 120kDa, that catalyze transfer of phosphate group from ATP molecule to D-glucose or other D-hexoses. The overall reaction can be written as ATP + D-hexose = ADP + D-hexose 6-phosphate. This enzyme is very important because it involved into glycolysis cycle at the first step of converting of α-D-glucose.

Systematic name for phosphoglucoisomerase is D-glucose-6-phosphate aldose-ketose-isomerase , but in literature can be used under the different names: hexose phosphate isomerase, phosphoglucoisomerase, phosphohexomutase, D-glucose-6-phosphate ketol-isomerase, phosphohexose isomerase, glucose phosphate isomerase, phosphosaccharomutase, phosphohexoisomerase, oxoisomerase, hexosephosphate isomerase and phosphoglucose isomerase.
