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 . It is specific for glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate.
