ⓘ 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase deficiency

6-Phosphogluconate dehydrogenase deficiency, or partial deficiency, is an autosomal hereditary disease characterized by abnormally low levels of 6-Phosphogluconate dehydrogenase, a metabolic enzyme involved in the Pentose phosphate pathway. It is very important in the metabolism of red blood cells. 6PDG deficiency affects less than 1% of the population, and studies suggest that there may be race variant involved in many of the reported cases. Although it is similar, 6PDG deficiency is not linked to glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, as they are located on different chromosomes. However, a few people have had both of these metabolic diseases.
