Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits glycogen debranching enzyme activity; polysaccharide binding activity; and polyubiquitin modification-dependent protein binding activity. Involved in glycogen metabolic process. Localizes to cytoplasm; inclusion body; and nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; heart; musculature; and sensory organ. Used to study glycogen storage disease III. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in glycogen storage disease III. Orthologous to human AGL (amylo-alpha-1, 6-glucosidase, 4-alpha-glucanotransferase).
