- glycerol + NADP+ D-glyceraldehyde + NADPH + H+
This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-OH group of donor with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is glycerol:NADP+ oxidoreductase. This enzyme is also called glycerol dehydrogenase (NADP+). This enzyme participates in glycerolipid metabolism.
