Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits alpha-1,4-glucosidase activity. Involved in several processes, including diaphragm contraction; glycogen catabolic process; and muscle cell cellular homeostasis. Localizes to the lysosome and membrane. Used to study glycogen storage disease II. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in glycogen storage disease II. Orthologous to human GAA (glucosidase alpha, acid).
