In enzymology, a glycerol-3-phosphate oxidase (EC 18.104.22.168) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction: sn-glycerol 3-phosphate + O2 ↔ glycerone phosphate + H2O2. Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are sn-glycerol 3-phosphate and O2, whereas its two products are glycerone phosphate and H2O2. This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-OH group of donor with oxygen as acceptor. This enzyme participates in glycerophospholipid metabolism. It employs one cofactor, FAD.
L-α-glycerophosphate oxidase (Microorganism)
This enzyme is useful for enzymatic determination of triglyceride when coupled with lipoprotein lipase and glycerokinase in clinical analysis.
