IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: glucose 1-dehydrogenase [NAD(P)+]

Reaction: D-glucose + NAD(P)+ = D-glucono-1,5-lactone + NAD(P)H + H+

Other name(s): D-glucose dehydrogenase (NAD(P)+); hexose phosphate dehydrogenase; β-D-glucose:NAD(P)+ 1-oxidoreductase; glucose 1-dehydrogenase

Systematic name: D-glucose:NAD(P)+ 1-oxidoreductase

Comments: This enzyme has similar activity with either NAD+ or NADP+. cf. EC, glucose 1-dehydrogenase (NAD+) and EC, glucose 1-dehydrogenase (NADP+).
