This enzyme is used for enzymatic determination of glycerol and triglyceride
when coupled with glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase G-3-P DH (G3D-301), glycerol-3-phosphate oxidase G-3-P oxidase (G3O-301, G3O-311, G3O-321) or pyruvate kinase (PYK-301) and lactate dehydrogenase (LCD-209, LCD-211), lipoprotein lipase (LPL-311, LPL-314) in clinical analysis.

  • pH Stability pH 5.5 - 10.0 (25 °C, 20hr)
  • Thermal stability below 40 °C (pH 7.5, 15min)
  • Substrate specificity This enzyme catalyzes the stereospecific transfer of the terminal phosphoryl
  • moiety of ATP to one of the primary hydroxyl group of glycerol, forming snglycerol-
  • 3-P. The enzyme has the highest specificity for glycerol, and also
  • phosphorylates dihydroxyacetone and glyceraldehyde. Mg2+ is essentially
  • required for the reaction.
