Glycogen debranching enzyme (IPR010401)

Short name: AGL/Gdb1

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This family includes human glycogen branching enzyme AGL [PMID: 17908927] and yeast Gdb1 [PMID: 11094287]. This enzyme contains a number of distinct catalytic activities. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Gdb1 is a multifunctional enzyme that acts as 1,4-alpha-D-glucan:1,4-alpha-D-glucan 4-alpha-D-glycosyltransferase and amylo-1,6-glucosidase in glycogen degradation [PMID: 21585652].
