Official Full Name
glucosamine-6-phosphate deaminase 2
The protein encoded by this gene is an allosteric enzyme that catalyzes the reversible reaction converting;D-glucosamine-6-phosphate into D-fructose-6-phosphate and ammonium. Variations of this gene have been reported to be;associated with influencing body mass index and susceptibility to obesity. A pseudogene of this gene is located on;chromosome 9. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants that encode different protein isoforms.
