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.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]
GeneCards Summary for GYS1 Gene
GYS1 (Glycogen Synthase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GYS1 include glycogen storage disease 0, muscle and glycogen storage disease due to muscle and heart glycogen synthase deficiency. Among its related pathways are AMPK signaling pathway and Glucagon signaling pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding and glycogen (starch) synthase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GYS2.
