This gene encodes a member of the glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase enzyme family. The encoded protein hydrolyzes glycerophosphoinositol to produce inositol 1-phosphate and glycerol. This protein may have a role in osteoblast differentiation and growth. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]
GeneCards Summary for GDPD2 Gene
GDPD2 (Glycerophosphodiester Phosphodiesterase Domain Containing 2) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include phosphoric diester hydrolase activity and glycerophosphoinositol inositolphosphodiesterase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GDPD5.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GDPD2 Gene
Has glycerophosphoinositol inositolphosphodiesterase activity and specifically hydrolyzes glycerophosphoinositol, with no activity for other substrates such as glycerophosphoinositol 4-phosphate, glycerophosphocholine, glycerophosphoethanolamine, and glycerophosphoserine. Accelerates the program of osteoblast differentiation and growth. May play a role in remodeling of the actin cytoskeleton (By similarity).
