IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 3.1.3.21

Names

Accepted name:
glycerol-1-phosphatase
Other names:
α-glycerol phosphatase
α-glycerophosphatase
glycerol 3-phosphatase
glycerol 3-phosphate phosphohydrolase
glycerol-3-phosphate phosphatase
Systematic name:
glycerol-1-phosphate phosphohydrolase

Reactions

Comments:

The Dunaliella enzyme acts more rapidly on sn-glycerol 1-phosphate than on the 3-phosphate. The enzyme from yeast also acts on propane-1,2-diol 1-phosphate, but not on a variety of other phosphate esters.
