Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits alpha-1,4-glucosidase activity. Involved in several processes, including diaphragm contraction; glycogen catabolic process; and muscle cell cellular homeostasis. Localizes to lysosome and membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; genitourinary system; heart; sensory organ; and skeleton. 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).
