Gene: Gyg (glycogenin) Mus musculus
Symbol: Gyg
Name: glycogenin
RGD ID: 733753
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including glucose binding activity; manganese ion binding activity; and transferase activity, transferring hexosyl groups. Predicted to be involved in glycogen biosynthetic process. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; gut gland; heart; nervous system; and respiratory system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in glycogen storage disease and glycogen storage disease XV. Orthologous to human GYG1 (glycogenin 1); PARTICIPATES IN glycogen biosynthetic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 1H-pyrazole; 2,3',4,4',5-Pentachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
