Accepted name: glucose-6-phosphate isomerase
Reaction: α-D-glucose 6-phosphate = β-D-fructofuranose 6-phosphate

Other name(s): phosphohexose isomerase; phosphohexomutase; oxoisomerase; hexosephosphate isomerase; phosphosaccharomutase; phosphoglucoisomerase; phosphohexoisomerase; phosphoglucose isomerase; glucose phosphate isomerase; hexose phosphate isomerase; D-glucose-6-phosphate ketol-isomerase
Systematic name: α-D-glucose-6-phosphate aldose-ketose-isomerase (configuration-inverting)
Comments: The enzyme from yeast catalyses the reversible conversion specifically between the α-D-glucose 6-phosphate and β-D-fructofuranose 6-phosphate. The enzyme also catalyses the anomerization of both D-hexose 6-phosphates [7].
