In this freely reversible cytosolic reaction, dihydroxyacetone phosphate and D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate react to form D-fructose 1,6-bisphosphate. The active form of aldolase, the enzyme that catalyzes the reaction, is a homotetramer. Three aldolase isozymes have been identified which differ in their patterns of expression in various adult tissues and during development but are otherwise functionally indistinguishable (Ali and Cox 1995; Dunbar and Fothergill-Gilmore 1988).
