Phosphorylase kinase, alpha 1

Phosphorylase kinase is a polymer of 16 subunits, four each of alpha, beta, gamma and delta. The alpha subunit includes the skeletal muscle and hepatic isoforms, and the skeletal muscle isoform is encoded by this gene. The beta subunit is the same in both the muscle and hepatic isoforms, and encoded by one gene. The gamma subunit also includes the skeletal muscle and hepatic isoforms, which are encoded by two different genes. The delta subunit is a calmodulin and can be encoded by three different genes. The gamma subunits contain the active site of the enzyme, whereas the alpha and beta subunits have regulatory functions controlled by phosphorylation. The delta subunit mediates the dependence of the enzyme on calcium concentration. Mutations in this gene cause glycogen storage disease type 9D, also known as X-linked muscle glycogenosis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified in this gene. A pseudogene has been found on chromosome 1.[provided by RefSeq, Feb 2010] (from NCBI)

Phosphorylase Kinase Deficiency
Bali et al., Seattle, United States. In Unknown Journal, 2011
Mutations in PHKA1, encoding subunit α, cause the rare X-linked disorder muscle PhK deficiency; mutations in PHKA2, also encoding subunit α, cause the most common form, liver PhK deficiency (X-linked liver glycogenosis); mutations in PHKB, encoding subunit β, cause autosomal recessive PhK deficiency in both liver and muscle; and mutations in PHKG2, encoding subunit γ, cause autosomal recessive liver PhK deficiency.
