Catalyzes the NAD-dependent oxidation of glycerol to dihydroxyacetone (glycerone). Allows microorganisms to utilize glycerol as a source of carbon under anaerobic conditions. Is also able to use various diols as substrates, such as propan-1,2-diol, butan-2,3-diol, ethan-1,2-diol, and 3-mercapto-1,2-dihydroxypropane.1 Publication

    Proteins known to be involved in the 2 steps of the subpathway in this organism are:
    1. Glycerol dehydrogenase (gldA)
    2. no protein annotated in this organism
    This subpathway is part of the pathway glycerol fermentation, which is itself part of Polyol metabolism.
