Nucleotide sequence of the Drosophila glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase gene and comparison with the homologous human gene.


Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) has a major role in NADPH production and is found in almost all cell types. The structural gene for G6PD is X-linked in Drosophila melanogaster, as it is in most eukaryotic organisms, and due to its ubiquitous expression, it can be considered a typical 'housekeeping' gene. Here we present the complete nucleotide (nt… (More)
