Transaldolase is an enzyme (EC 18.104.22.168) of the non-oxidative phase of the pentose phosphate pathway. In humans, transaldolase is encoded by the TALDO1 gene. The following chemical reaction is catalyzed by transaldolase:sedoheptulose 7-phosphate + glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate↔ erythrose 4-phosphate + fructose 6-phosphate.
