Gene: Gys2 (glycogen synthase 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Gys2
Name: glycogen synthase 2
Description: Exhibits glucose binding activity and glycogen (starch) synthase activity. Involved in glycogen biosynthetic process and response to glucose. Localizes to the cortical actin cytoskeleton; cytosol; and ectoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in glycogen storage disease. Orthologous to human GYS2 (glycogen synthase 2); PARTICIPATES IN glycogen biosynthetic pathway; glycogen metabolic pathway; congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-benzylpiperazine; 2,3,4,7,8-Pentachlorodibenzofuran; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: glycogen [starch] synthase, liver; Glycogen synthase 2 (liver); GLYSN
