EC 18.104.22.168 - Glycerol-1-phosphatase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
glycerol 3-phosphate phosphohydrolase
- (1) sn-glycerol 1-phosphate + H2O = glycerol + phosphate
- (2) sn-glycerol 3-phosphate + H2O = glycerol + phosphate
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.
