  Domain Name: GDPD_TtGDE_like
Glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase domain of Thermoanaerobacter tengcongensis and similar proteins. This subfamily corresponds to the glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase domain (GDPD) present in Thermoanaerobacter tengcongensis glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase (TtGDE, EC and its uncharacterized homologs. Members in this family show high sequence similarity to Escherichia coli GP-GDE, which catalyzes the degradation of glycerophosphodiesters to produce sn-glycerol-3-phosphate (G3P) and the corresponding alcohols. Despite the fact that most of GDPD family members exist as the monomer, TtGDE can function as a dimeric unit. Its catalytic mechanism is based on the general base-acid catalysis, which is similar to that of phosphoinositide-specific phospholipases C (PI-PLCs, EC A divalent metal cation is required for the enzyme activity of TtGDE.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
