Phosphoglycerate mutase (PGAM) is a member of the glycolytic pathway, where it catalyzes the reversible conversion of 3-phosphoglycerate to 2-phosphoglycerate, a step occurring in both glycolysis and gluconeogenesis. During glycolysis, 3-PG is produced from phosphorylation of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate. Phosphoglycerate mutase then converts 3-PG to 2-PG, allowing subsequent steps in glycolysis to proceed, maintaining the flow of metabolites through the glycolytic pathway, leading to production of pyruvate which enters the TCA cycle powering oxidative phosphorylation. In gluconeogenesis, 2-PG is converted back to 3-PG, an essential step for replenishment of glucose under conditions of low glucose levels, ensuring supply for tissues with high energy demands such as brain and red blood cells. Dysregulation of PGAM activity through mutation or expression is associated with several medical conditions. It may be upregulated in cancer cells which depend on a high glycolytic flux. AkrivisBio’s Phosphoglycerate Mutase Activity Assay is a simple, sensitive means of assessing enzyme activity in a variety of sample types with a sensitivity in the low microunit range.
