Accepted name: phosphogluconate dehydrogenase [NAD(P)+-dependent, decarboxylating]
Reaction: 6-phospho-D-gluconate + NAD(P)+ = D-ribulose 5-phosphate + CO2 + NAD(P)H + H+

Systematic name: 6-phospho-D-gluconate:NAD(P)+ 2-oxidoreductase (decarboxylating)
Comments: The enzyme participates in the oxidative branch of the pentose phosphate pathway, whose main purpose is to produce reducing power and pentose for biosynthetic reactions. Unlike EC, phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (NADP+-dependent, decarboxylating), it is not specific for NADP+ and can accept both cofactors with similar efficiency. cf. EC, phosphogluconate dehydrogenase [NAD+-dependent, decarboxylating].
