Glucose-6-phosphatase (G6Pase) Assay Kit                                                                                                                                                Price

Product Description: G6Pase is anchored in the membrane of the ER with the catalytic site facing the lumen, and converts glucose-6-phosphate
to glucose and inorganic phosphate (Pi). This activity of G6Pase plays an important role in gluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis. Expression of the
G6Pase gene is largely restricted to liver, kidney and to a lesser extent intestinal mucosa and pancreatic beta cells. Mutations in the catalytic
subunit of G6Pase or the ER membrane transporters can influence the availability of glucose, causing GSD Type Ia, Ib, and Ic. G6Pase deficiency
results in hypoglycemia and excessive intracellular accumulation of glucose-6-phosphate, which leads to elevated levels of lactate and uric acid.
The G6Pase enzyme activity assay kit is based detection of G6Pase-mediated release of Pi, which forms phosphomolybdate with the basic dye
Malachite Green (Anal. Biochem. 271:29,1999). Kit components are stable for at least 1 year if stored and handled properly.

Mouse liver tissue homogenates
were prepared from normal control
and MCD diet-fed mice. G6Pase
activities were assayed, showing that
G6Pase activitiy is significantly
reduced in the fatty liver.
