Target

  • FunctionPhosphorylase is an important allosteric enzyme in carbohydrate metabolism. Enzymes from different sources differ in their regulatory mechanisms and in their natural substrates. However, all known phosphorylases share catalytic and structural properties.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in PYGM are the cause of glycogen storage disease type 5 (GSD5) [MIM:232600]; also known as McArdle disease. GSD5 is a metabolic disorder resulting in myopathy characterized by exercise intolerance, cramps, muscle weakness and recurrent myoglobinuria.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glycogen phosphorylase family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylation of Ser-15 converts phosphorylase B (unphosphorylated) to phosphorylase A.

Thank you for your enquiry and your interest in our products.
The homology between mouse and human seems to be very high (above 95%) so cross-reactivity with murine PYGM can be expected even for those two antibodies (ab63158 and ab63159) which hav...
