- Glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (NAD+)
enzymology, a glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (NAD+) (EC number|22.214.171.124) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:sn-glycerol 3-phosphate + NAD+ glycerone phosphate + NADH + H+
This enzyme belongs to the family of
oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-OH group of donor with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is sn-glycerol-3-phosphate:NAD+ 2-oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include alpha-glycerol phosphate dehydrogenase (NAD+), alpha-glycerophosphate dehydrogenase (NAD+), glycerol 1-phosphate dehydrogenase, glycerol phosphate dehydrogenase (NAD+), glycerophosphate dehydrogenase (NAD+), hydroglycerophosphate dehydrogenase, L-alpha-glycerol phosphate dehydrogenase, L-alpha-glycerophosphate dehydrogenase, L-glycerol phosphate dehydrogenase, L-glycerophosphate dehydrogenase, NAD+-alpha-glycerophosphate dehydrogenase, NAD+-dependent glycerol phosphate dehydrogenase, NAD+-dependent glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, NAD+-L-glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, NAD+-linked glycerol 3-phosphate dehydrogenase, NADH-dihydroxyacetone phosphate reductase, and glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (NAD+). This enzyme participates in glycerophospholipid metabolism.
As of late 2007, 12 structures have been solved for this class of enzymes, with PDB accession codes PDB link|1EVY, PDB link|1EVZ, PDB link|1JDJ, PDB link|1M66, PDB link|1M67, PDB link|1N1E, PDB link|1N1G, PDB link|1WPQ, PDB link|1X0V, PDB link|1X0X, PDB link|1YJ8, and PDB link|1Z82.
