GYS1

Official Full Name
glycogen synthase 1 (muscle)
Background
The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the addition of glucose monomers to the growing glycogen molecule through the formation of alpha-1,4-glycoside linkages. Mutations in this gene are associated with muscle glycogen storage disease. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
Synonyms
GYS1; glycogen synthase 1 (muscle); GYS; glycogen [starch] synthase, muscle; GSY; zgc:63701
