Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits 6-phosphofructokinase activity and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including glycogen catabolic process; glycolytic process through glucose-6-phosphate; and positive regulation of insulin secretion. Localizes to cytosol and sperm principal piece. Used to study glycogen storage disease VII. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in glycogen storage disease VII. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; cardiovascular system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; and musculoskeletal system. Orthologous to human PFKM (phosphofructokinase, muscle).
