IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 1.2.7.6

Names

Accepted name:
glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (ferredoxin)
Other names:
GAPOR
glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate Fd oxidoreductase
glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate ferredoxin reductase
Systematic name:
D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate:ferredoxin oxidoreductase

Reaction

Cofactors

Comments:

Contains tungsten-molybdopterin and iron-sulfur clusters. This enzyme is thought to function in place of glyceralde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase and possibly phosphoglycerate kinase in the novel Embden-Meyerhof-type glycolytic pathway found in Pyrococcus furiosus [1]. It is specific for glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate.
