Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.4.0)
Enables several functions, including 4-alpha-glucanotransferase activity; amylo-alpha-1,6-glucosidase activity; and glycogen debranching enzyme activity. Involved in glycogen catabolic process. Acts upstream of or within glycogen metabolic process. Located in cytoplasm; inclusion body; and nucleus. Is active in cytosol. 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).
