KEGG   ENZYME: 3.1.3.21Help
Entry
EC 3.1.3.21                 Enzyme                                 

Name
glycerol-1-phosphatase;
alpha-glycerophosphatase;
alpha-glycerol phosphatase;
glycerol 3-phosphatase;
glycerol-3-phosphate phosphatase;
glycerol 3-phosphate phosphohydrolase
Class
Hydrolases;
Acting on ester bonds;
Phosphoric-monoester hydrolases
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
glycerol-1-phosphate phosphohydrolase
Reaction(IUBMB)
glycerol 1-phosphate + H2O = glycerol + phosphate [RN:R08658]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
glycerol 1-phosphate [CPD:C03189];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
glycerol [CPD:C00116];
phosphate [CPD:C00009]
Comment
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.
