IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (phosphorylating)
Other names:
3-phosphoglyceraldehyde dehydrogenase
NAD-dependent glyceraldehyde phosphate dehydrogenase
NADH-glyceraldehyde phosphate dehydrogenase
dehydrogenase, glyceraldehyde phosphate
glyceraldehyde phosphate dehydrogenase (NAD)
glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (NAD)
phosphoglyceraldehyde dehydrogenase
triosephosphate dehydrogenase
NAD-dependent glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase
Systematic name:
D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate:NAD+ oxidoreductase (phosphorylating)



Also acts very slowly on D-glyceraldehyde and some other aldehydes; thiols can replace phosphate.
