Application

DL-Glyceraldehyde has been used:
• as modifying reagent in the preparation of crystallization solution
• as a substrate to measure aldose reductase activity
• in the preparation of d/l-glyceraldehyde stock to determine the specific activity of GAPDH (glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase)

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glyceraldehyde serves as an efficient cross-linking agent and is considered non-toxic. It is an intermediate of a number of metabolic such as glycolysis and pentose phosphate pathway.
