Disease relevance of glgX

  • When the mutant was transformed with putative glgX genes of Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803, the short chains were decreased as compared to the parental mutant strain [1].
  • The putative glgX gene encoding isoamylase-type debranching enzyme was isolated from the cyanobacterium, Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942 [1].
