GAPDH

A gene on chromosome 12p13 that encodes glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, which has both glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase and nitrosylase activities. It catalyses the reversible
oxidative phosphorylation of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate in the presence of inorganic phosphate and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, an important energy-yielding step in carbohydrate metabolism. GADPH participates in nuclear events, including transcription, RNA transport, DNA replication and apoptosis.
