IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: glycerol-1,2-cyclic-phosphate 2-phosphodiesterase

Reaction: glycerol 1,2-cyclic phosphate + H2O = glycerol 1-phosphate

Other name(s): rac-glycerol 1:2-cyclic phosphate 2-phosphodiesterase

Systematic name: rac-glycerol-1,2-cyclic-phosphate 2-glycerophosphohydrolase

Comments: Acts on both stereoisomers of the substrate and also, more slowly, on 3',5'-cyclic AMP and on 2',3'-cyclic AMP.
