Reaction: α-D-glucose 1-phosphate = D-glucose 6-phosphate
Other name(s): glucose phosphomutase; glucose-1-phosphate phosphotransferase
Systematic name: α-D-glucose 1,6-phosphomutase (glucose-cofactor)
Comments: The enzyme is activated by D-glucose, which probably acts as an acceptor for a phosphate residue from the substrate, thus being itself converted into the product.
