Accepted name: glycerol dehydratase
Reaction: glycerol = 3-hydroxypropanal + H2O
Other name(s): glycerol dehydrase; glycerol hydro-lyase; dhaB (gene name)
Systematic name: glycerol hydro-lyase (3-hydroxypropanal-forming)
Comments: Two different forms of the enzyme have been described. One form requires a cobamide cofactor, while the other is a glycyl radical enzyme.
