This gene encodes a member of the glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase family of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of deacylated glycerophospholipids to glycerol phosphate and alcohol. The encoded protein is localized to the cytoplasm and concentrates near the perinuclear region. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]
GeneCards Summary for GDPD1 Gene
GDPD1 (Glycerophosphodiester Phosphodiesterase Domain Containing 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are PI Metabolism and Metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include phosphoric diester hydrolase activity and glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GDPD3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for GDPD1 Gene
Hydrolyzes lysoglycerophospholipids to produce lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) and the corresponding amines. Shows a preference for 1-O-alkyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (lyso-PAF), lysophosphatidylethanolamine (lyso-PE) and lysophosphatidylcholine (lyso-PC). May be involved in bioactive N-acylethanolamine biosynthesis. Does not display glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase activity, since it cannot hydrolyze either glycerophosphoinositol or glycerophosphocholine.
