Part of the book: The Biochemical Guide to Enzymes


Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) is one of the enzymes from the oxidoreductase class. There is one functional gene in the human body that codes for GAPDH, which is located on the 12th chromosome.

Keywords: glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate, chromosome, cellular proteins
