Summary
Predicted to enable glucose binding activity and glycogen (starch) synthase activity. Predicted to be involved in glycogen biosynthetic process and response to glucose. Predicted to be located in cortical actin cytoskeleton; cytosol; and ectoplasm. Predicted to be active in cytoplasm. Is expressed in liver. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in glycogen storage disease. Orthologous to human GYS2 (glycogen synthase 2). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
