Gene: PYGM (glycogen phosphorylase, muscle associated) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PYGM
Name: glycogen phosphorylase, muscle associated
Description: This gene encodes a muscle enzyme involved in glycogenolysis. Highly similar enzymes encoded by different genes are found in liver and brain. Mutations in this gene are associated with McArdle disease (myophosphorylase deficiency), a glycogen storage disease of muscle. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: glycogen phosphorylase, muscle form; GSD5; muscle glycogen phosphorylase; myophosphorylase; phosphorylase, glycogen, muscle; phosphorylase, glycogen, muscle (McArdle syndrome, glycogen storage disease type V)
