Disease relevance of gldA


High impact information on gldA

  • The sequential three open reading frames from the first to the third (gldA, gldB, and gldC genes) encoded polypeptides of 555, 194, and 141 amino acid residues with predicted molecular weights of 60,659(alpha), 21,355(beta), and 16,104(gamma), respectively [4].
  • In contrast, coexpression of GLD with the proteinaceous electron transfer components of P450cam resulted in about tenfold improvement in the substrate conversion, implying that the whole cell biocatalyst utilized molecular oxygen, endogenous NADH, and glycerol in the cell for catalysis [2].
  • We purified and characterized glycerol dehydrogenase from Hansenula ofunaensis and prepared optically active 1,2-octanediol using a recombinant Escherichia coli harboring the glycerol dehydrogenase gene [5].
