In addition to its classic glycolytic role, glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) has been implicated in many activities unrelated to glycolysis, such as membrane fusion, binding to host proteins and signal transduction. GAPDH can be the target of several modifications that allow incorporation to membranes and possible regulation of its activity;(More)
