(redirected from glycogen synthase 1)

GYS1

A gene on chromosome 19q13.3 that encodes glycogen synthase, which adds glucose monomers to growing glycogen chains by forming alpha-1,4-glycoside linkages.

Molecular pathology
Defects of GYS1 cause glycogen storage disease type 0b.

In EAT, there were increases in the insulin receptor ( IR) and IR substrate 2 ( IRS2) mRNA, but CE-induced increases in mRNA expression of IRS1, phosphoinositide-3-kinase, AKT1, glucose transporters 1 and 4, and glycogen synthase 1 expression and decreased trends in mRNA expression of glycogen synthase kinase 3beta were not statistically significant.
