  • FunctionTransfers the glycosyl residue from UDP-Glc to the non-reducing end of alpha-1,4-glucan.
  • PathwayGlycan biosynthesis; glycogen biosynthesis.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in GYS1 are the cause of muscle glycogen storage disease type 0 (GSD0b) [MIM:611556]; also known as muscle glycogen synthase deficiency. GSD0b is a metabolic disorder characterized by fasting hypoglycemia presenting in infancy or early childhood. The role of muscle glycogen is to provide critical energy during bursts of activity and sustained muscle work.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glycosyltransferase 3 family.

Anti-Glycogen synthase 1 (phospho S645) antibody images

  • ab53691 at 1/50 dilution staining Glycogen Synthase 1 in human skeletal muscle by Immunohistochemistry, Paraffin embedded tissue, in the absence or presence of the immunising peptide.
  • IHC image of ab53691 staining in human normal skeletal muscle formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab53691, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
