Gene: Pygb (glycogen phosphorylase B) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pygb
Name: glycogen phosphorylase B
Description: Exhibits several functions, including carbohydrate binding activity; glycogen phosphorylase activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in glycogen catabolic process. Localizes to the axon. Orthologous to human PYGB (glycogen phosphorylase B); PARTICIPATES IN glycogen degradation pathway; insulin signaling pathway; starch and sucrose metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,5-hexanedione; 3-chloropropane-1,2-diol; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: brain; brain glycogen phosphorylase; glycogen phosphorylase, brain form; GLYPHOA; phosphorylase, glycogen; phosphorylase, glycogen; brain
