2-hydroxy-3-oxopropionate reductase (IPR006398)

Short name: Tartro_sem_red

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


These sequences represent 2-hydroxy-3-oxopropionate reductase (EC:, also called tartronate semialdehyde reductase. It follows glyoxylate carboligase and precedes glycerate kinase in D-glycerate pathway of glyoxylate degradation. The eventual product, 3-phosphoglycerate, is an intermediate of glycolysis and is readily metabolized. Tartronic semialdehyde, the substrate of this enzyme, may also come from other pathways, such as D-glucarate catabolism [PMID: 10762278, PMID: 10601204].
