Glycogenin 1

Glycogenin, GYG, glycogenin-1, GLG1
This gene encodes a member of the glycogenin family. Glycogenin is a glycosyltransferase that catalyzes the formation of a short glucose polymer from uridine diphosphate glucose in an autoglucosylation reaction. This reaction is followed by elongation and branching of the polymer, catalyzed by glycogen synthase and branching enzyme, to form glycogen. This gene is expressed in muscle and other tissues. Mutations in this gene result in glycogen storage disease XV. This gene has pseudogenes on chromosomes 1, 8 and 13 respectively. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2010] (from NCBI)

Hypoglycaemic effects of functional tri-peptides from silk in differentiated adipocytes and streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice.
Park et al., South Korea. In J Sci Food Agric, Feb 2016
BACKGROUND: In this study, the tri-peptides Gly-Glu-Tyr (GEY) and Gly-Tyr-Gly (GYG), identified previously as active compounds from the silk peptide E5K6, significantly stimulated basal and insulin-mediated glucose uptake by 3T3-L1 fibroblasts in a dose-dependent manner.

Glycogen synthesis is initiated by self-glucosylation of the glycosyltransferases glycogenin-1 and -2 that, in the presence of UDP-glucose, form both the first glucose-O-tyrosine linkage, and then stepwise add a series of α1,4-linked glucoses to a growing chain of variable length.
