Glycerol dehydrogenase

Glycerol dehydrogenase from Cellulomonas sp. Glycerol + NAD+ ----> Dihydroxiacetone + NADH + H+ Glycerol + NAD+ <---- Dihydroxiacetone + NADH + H+ This enzyme is used for enzymatic determination of glycerol and of triglyceride when coupled with lipoprotein lipase (LPL-311, LPL-314) in clinical analysis.
