NAD-dependent glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase signature


NAD-dependent glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (EC (GPD) catalyzes the reversible reduction of dihydroxyacetone phosphate to glycerol-3-phosphate. It is a eukaryotic cytosolic homodimeric protein of about 40 Kd. As a signature pattern we selected a glycine-rich region that is probably [1] involved in NAD-binding.
