i explained thus in more threads on this forum but here's the story about metabolizing glycerol again:
First glycerol is activated by giving it a phosphate group. The enzyme in play is glycerol kinase. The result is glycerol-3-phosphate.
This is oxidized by glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase to dihydroxyacetonphosphate.
Oh! Thank You very Much....
