- Acylglycerone-phosphate reductase
enzymology, an acylglycerone-phosphate reductase (EC number|18.104.22.168) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:1-palmitoylglycerol 3-phosphate + NADP+ palmitoylglycerone phosphate + 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 1-palmitoylglycerol-3-phosphate:NADP+ oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include palmitoyldihydroxyacetone-phosphate reductase, palmitoyl dihydroxyacetone phosphate reductase, palmitoyl-dihydroxyacetone-phosphate reductase, acyldihydroxyacetone phosphate reductase, and palmitoyl dihydroxyacetone phosphate reductase. This enzyme participates in glycerophospholipidand ether lipidmetabolism.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|37250-35-4."
