  Domain Name: GDPD_GDE2
Glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase domain of mammalian glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase GDE2 and similar proteins. This subfamily corresponds to the glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase domain (GDPD) present in mammalian GDE2 (also known as glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase domain-containing protein 5 (GDPD5)) and their metazoan homologs. Mammalian GDE2 is transmembrane protein primarily expressed in mature neurons. It is a mammalian homolog of bacterial glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterases (GP-GDEs, EC, which catalyze the hydrolysis of various glycerophosphodiesters, and produce sn-glycerol-3-phosphate (G3P) and the corresponding alcohols. Mammalian GDE2 selectively hydrolyzes glycerophosphocholine (GPC) and has been characterized as GPC-GDE (EC that contributes to osmotic regulation of cellular GPC. Mammalian GDE2 functions in a complex with an antioxidant scavenger peroxiredoxin1 (Prdx1) to control motor neuron differentiation in the spinal cord. Mammalian GDE2 also plays a critical role for retinoid-induced neuronal outgrowth. The catalytic activity of GDPD domain is essential for mammalian GDE2 cellular function.
