Previous GeneCards Identifiers for PGAM2 Gene
Phosphoglycerate mutase (PGAM) catalyzes the reversible reaction of 3-phosphoglycerate (3-PGA) to 2-phosphoglycerate (2-PGA) in the glycolytic pathway. The PGAM is a dimeric enzyme containing, in different tissues, different proportions of a slow-migrating muscle (MM) isozyme, a fast-migrating brain (BB) isozyme, and a hybrid form (MB). This gene encodes muscle-specific PGAM subunit. Mutations in this gene cause muscle phosphoglycerate mutase eficiency, also known as glycogen storage disease X. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]

PGAM2 (Phosphoglycerate Mutase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PGAM2 include Glycogen Storage Disease X and Glycogen Storage Disease. Among its related pathways are Glucose metabolism and Central carbon metabolism in cancer. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include cofactor binding and bisphosphoglycerate mutase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PGAM1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for PGAM2 Gene
Interconversion of 3- and 2-phosphoglycerate with 2,3-bisphosphoglycerate as the primer of the reaction. Can also catalyze the reaction of EC 220.127.116.11 (synthase), but with a reduced activity.
