Accepted name: glucose-6-phosphatase
Reaction: D-glucose 6-phosphate + H2O = D-glucose + phosphate
Other name(s): glucose 6-phosphate phosphatase
Systematic name: D-glucose-6-phosphate phosphohydrolase
Comments: Wide distribution in animal tissues. Also catalyses potent transphosphorylations from carbamoyl phosphate, hexose phosphates, diphosphate, phosphoenolpyruvate and nucleoside di- and triphosphates, to D-glucose, D-mannose, 3-methyl-D-glucose or 2-deoxy-D-glucose [cf. EC (phosphoramidate—hexose phosphotransferase), EC (diphosphate—glycerol phosphotransferase) and EC (phosphoamidase)].
