Default can someone help with this

hey guys, doing biochem at the moment. i've dug out lippincotts and searched online. cant find the answer to this - but it is late

In gluconeogenesis, there are 2 names used for an enzyme that makes fructose 1 6 bisposphate to fructose 6 phosphate.

fructose 1 6 bisphosphate vs fructose bisphosphatase 1

what is the difference? it seems like they are used interchangeably, are they the same enzyme? (first aid pgs 101 vs pg 99)

hope someone can shed some light on this

thanks!

It must be fructose 1-6 bis phosphatase.
