CDP-glycerol diphosphatase

Jump to: navigation, search

In enzymology, a CDP-glycerol diphosphatase (EC 3.6.1.16) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

CDP-glycerol + H2O CMP + sn-glycerol 3-phosphate

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are CDP-glycerol and H2O, whereas its two products are CMP and sn-glycerol 3-phosphate.

This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, specifically those acting on acid anhydrides in phosphorus-containing anhydrides. The systematic name of this enzyme class is CDP-glycerol phosphoglycerohydrolase. Other names in common use include CDP-glycerol pyrophosphatase, and cytidine diphosphoglycerol pyrophosphatase. This enzyme participates in glycerophospholipid metabolism.
