Glucose-6-phosphate

Glucose-6-phosphate
(Science: biochemistry) glucose 6-phosphate is a phosphomonoester of glucose that is formed by transfer of phosphate from atp, catalysed by the enzyme hexokinase.
It is an intermediate both of the glycolytic pathway (next converted to fructose 6 phosphate) and of the nadph generating pentose Phosphate Pathway, formed from glucose via hexokinase. However it is not strictly a glycolytic intermediate and it is readily converted to glycogen or oxidized to nadph.
