Gene: GYG2 (glycogenin 2) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: GYG2
Name: glycogenin 2
Description: This gene encodes a member of the the glycogenin family. Glycogenin is a self-glucosylating protein involved in the initiation reactions of glycogen biosynthesis. A gene on chromosome 3 encodes the muscle glycogenin and this X-linked gene encodes the glycogenin mainly present in liver; both are involved in blood glucose homeostasis. This gene has a short version on chromosome Y, which is 3' truncated and can not make a functional protein. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.[provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: glycogenin glucosyltransferase; glycogenin-2; GN-2; GN2
