The antibody detects endogenous levels of total GPD2 protein.
Mitochondrial glycerophosphate dehydrogenase (EC 1. 1. 99. 5), or GPD2, is located on the outer surface of the inner mitochondrial membrane and catalyzes the unidirectional conversion of glycerol-3-phosphate (G-3-P) to dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP) with concomitant reduction of the enzyme-bound FAD. Together with a cytosolic NAD-linked GPD (GPD1; MIM 138420), GPD2 forms the glycerol phosphate shuttle, which uses the interconversion of G-3-P and DHAP to transfer reducing equivalents into mitochondria, resulting in the reoxidation of NADH formed during glycolysis.
