Glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterases (GDPDs; EC 18.104.22.168), such as GDPD5, are involved in glycerol metabolism (Lang et al., 2008 [PubMed 17578682]).[supplied by OMIM, Jan 2010]
GeneCards Summary for GDPD5 Gene
GDPD5 (Glycerophosphodiester Phosphodiesterase Domain Containing 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Glycerophospholipid biosynthesis. GO annotations related to this gene include phosphoric diester hydrolase activity and glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GDPD2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GDPD5 Gene
Promotes neurite formation. Cooperates with PRDX1 to drive postmitotic motor neuron differentiation. The glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase activity may be required for its role in neuronal differentiation. May contribute to the osmotic regulation of cellular glycerophosphocholine.
