Fructose bisphosphatase (EC 3.1.3.11) is an enzyme in the liver that converts fructose-1,6-bisphosphate to fructose 6-phosphate in gluconeogenesis (the making of glucose from smaller substrates). Fructose bisphosphatase does the opposite job as phosphofructokinase, and both these enzymes work only in one direction.
