Gene: Pygm (glycogen phosphorylase, muscle associated) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pygm
Name: glycogen phosphorylase, muscle associated
RGD ID: 3461
Description: Exhibits anion binding activity; carbohydrate binding activity; and glycogen phosphorylase activity. Involved in several processes, including glycogen catabolic process; response to cAMP; and response to hypoxia. Localizes to sarcoplasmic reticulum. Used to study cholestasis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in glycogen storage disease V. Orthologous to human PYGM (glycogen phosphorylase, muscle associated); PARTICIPATES IN glycogen degradation pathway; insulin signaling pathway; starch and sucrose metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran; 2,5-hexanedione.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: glycogen phosphorylase, muscle form; muscle (McArdle syndrome); muscle glycogen phosphorylase; Muscpho; myophosphorylase; Phosphorylase glycogen; Phosphorylase, glycogen; phosphorylase, glycogen, muscle
