6-phosphogluconic Acid Analysis Service

Online Inquiry

6-Phosphogluconic acid (6-phosphogluconate) is an intermediate metabolite in the pentose phosphate pathway and the Entener-Dudloff pathway. It is produced by 6-Phosphogluconic acid lactase and is acted upon by phosphogluconate dehydrogenase to produce ribulose 5-phosphate. 6-Phosphogluconic acid can also be acted upon by 6-Phosphogluconic acid dehydratase to produce 2-keto, 3-deoxy-6-phosphogluconic acid.

Creative Proteomics based on liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) technology uses Thermo Scientific's U3000 fast liquid chromatography for sample separation and Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive™ for sample identification, allowing efficient and accurate detection of 6-phosphogluconic acid content changes. In addition, we offer other glycolysis product assays to meet your different needs.
