Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the formation of the alpha-1,6-glucosidic linkages in glycogen by scission of a 1,4-alpha-linked oligosaccharide from growing alpha-1,4-glucan chains and the subsequent attachment of the oligosaccharide to the alpha-1,6 position.
Catalytic activity Reaction=Transfers a segment of a (1->4)-alpha-D-glucan chain to a primary hydroxy group in a similar glucan chain.; EC=;
Pathway Glycan biosynthesis; glycogen biosynthesis.
Subunit Monomer.
Similarity Belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 13 family. GlgB subfamily.
