Reactions
(S)-lactaldehyde + NAD(+) + H(2)O = (S)-lactate + NADH.
Glycolaldehyde + NAD(+) + H(2)O = glycolate + NADH.
General function:
Involved in catalytic activity
Specific function:
Specifically catalyzes the dephosphorylation of 2- phosphoglycolate. Is involved in the dissimilation of the intracellular 2-phosphoglycolate formed during the DNA repair of 3'-phosphoglycolate ends, a major class of DNA lesions induced by oxidative stress

Uniprot ID:
P52074
Molecular weight:
45110
General function:
Involved in oxidoreductase activity, acting on the CH-OH group of donors, NAD or NADP as acceptor
Specific function:
Catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of glyoxylate and hydroxypyruvate into glycolate and glycerate, respectively. Inactive towards 2-oxo-D-gluconate, 2-oxoglutarate, oxaloacetate and pyruvate. Only D- and L-glycerate are involved in the oxidative activity with NADP. Activity with NAD is very low
