Catalogue Number: GDH-5

Glucose dehydrogenase (GDH) catalyses the oxidation of D-glucose to D-glucolactone, while reducing in turn NAD+ or NADP+ to NADH and NADPH, respectively.  The product of this reaction, D-glucolatone, spontaneously and irreversibly hydrolyses in water to gluconic acid, hence favouring the formation of reduced NADH and NADPH.

GDH-5 accepts both NAD+ and NADP+ however it has a remarkable activity with NADP+, making an interesting alternative to GDH-101 if the enzyme of choice prefers NADP + as cofactor
