Glucose 6-phosphate is an intermediate of pathways of glucose utilization and production as well as a regulator of enzyme activity and gene expression. Studies on the latter functions are in part based on measurement of the glucose 6-phosphate content in a whole-cell extract. Several studies have suggested that there are multiple subcellular pools of glucose 6-phosphate. It is proposed that this data can be interpreted in terms of channelling of metabolic intermediates through multiple pathways of glucose metabolism with leakage of glucose 6-phosphate from the channels into a single free pool. It is also proposed that measurement of total tissue content of glucose 6-phosphate approximates the free pool.
