Glycogen synthase 2 (GYS2 "liver") normally catalyzes the addition of glucose residues to a growing glycogen molecule. In its absence, glycogen synthesis fails. Expression of GYS2 is confined to the liver and its deficiency is most prominently associated with fasting hypoglycemia (Gitzelmann et al. 1996; Orho et al. 1998).
