Domain relationships


6-phosphogluconolactonases (6PGL) EC:, which hydrolyses 6-phosphogluconolactone to 6-phosphogluconate is one of the enzymes in the pentose phosphate pathway. Two families of structurally dissimilar 6PGLs are known to exist: the Escherichia coli (strain K12) YbhE IPR022528 [PMID: 15576773] and the Pseudomonas aeruginosa DevB IPR005900 [PMID: 10869070] types.

6-phospho-D-glucono-1,5-lactone + H2O = 6-phospho-D-gluconate. This entry refers to the DevB type of 6-phosphogluconolactonase.
