1. Hexose monophosphate pathway (HM Pathway, oxidative pentose phosphate pathway, phosphogluconate pathway; Warburg-Dickens pathway)
A metabolic pathway present in a wide range of prokaryotic and eukaryotic microorganisms as well as in plants and animals; it involves the oxidative decarboxylation of glucose 6-phosphate, via 6 phosphogluconate, to ribulose 5-phosphate, followed by a series of reversible, non-oxidative interconversions whereby hexose and triose phosphates are formed from pentose phosphates.
