ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Glycosylphosphatidylinositol phospholipase D.
Alternative Name(s)
Glycoprotein phospholipase D.
Phosphatidylinositol phospholipase D.
Phosphatidylinositol-glycan-specific phospholipase D.
Phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase D.
Reaction catalysed
6-(alpha-D-glucosaminyl)-1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol + H(2)O <=> 6-(alpha-D-glucosaminyl)-1D-myo-inositol + phosphatidate
  • This enzyme is also active when O-4 of the glucosamine is substituted by carrying the oligosaccharide that can link a protein to the structure.
  • It therefore cleaves proteins from the lipid part of the glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchors, but does so by hydrolysis, whereas EC does so by elimination.
  • It acts on plasma membranes only after solubilization of the substrate with detergents or solvents, but it may act on intracellular membranes.
