In enzymology, a glycerol dehydrogenase () is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction:

glycerol + NAD<sup>+</sup> <math>rightleftharpoons</math> glycerone + NADH + H<sup>+</sup>

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are glycerol and NAD<sup>+</sup>, whereas its three products are glycerone, NADH, and H<sup>+</sup>.

This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-OH group of donor with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is glycerol:NAD+ 2-oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include glycerin dehydrogenase, and NAD+-linked glycerol dehydrogenase. This enzyme participates in glycerolipid metabolism.

Structural studies
