Summary
Predicted to enable calcium ion binding activity and sn-glycerol-3-phosphate:ubiquinone-8 oxidoreductase activity. Predicted to be involved in glycerol catabolic process and glycerol-3-phosphate metabolic process. Predicted to be part of glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase complex. Predicted to be active in mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human GPD2 (glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase 2).
