High impact information on GND2

  • This indicates that G9170 might code for a second 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase [1].
  • The gnd1 mutation, responsible for an approximately 80% loss of 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase activity and the inability of the cells to grow on delta gl, completely abolished the induction of all three enzymes, while the gnd2 mutation affected this only partially [2].
