Glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), the glycolytic enzyme, exists as an asymmetric homotetramer and is apparently a product of a single somatic gene. This protein is considered a moonlighting protein meaning that it exhibits functions typically ascribed to other proteins. The functions include cellular processes that involve gene expression and, intriguingly, those that are associated with membrane-binding. There are more than 60 human pseudogenes for GAPDH. These pseudogenes, by… CONTINUE READING
