Glycerol produced from hydrolysis of triglycerides in adipose tissue is a waste product, since it has to be in glycerol-3-P form and the enzyme for phosphorylation, glycerol kinase is absent in the adipose tissue. Glycerol -3-P can still be produced in the adipose tissue through interconversion of one of the glycolytic intermediate. Which of the following glycolytic intermediates can be used for the synthesis of glycerol-3-P?

A. Phosphoenol pyruvate

B. 1, 3 Bisphosphoglycerate

C. Dihydroxyacetone phosphate

D. Fructose 1, 6 bisphosphate

E. 2-Phosphoglycerate
