This gene encodes acid alpha-glucosidase, which isessential for the degradation of glycogen to glucose in lysosomes.Different forms of acid alpha-glucosidase are obtained byproteolytic processing. Defects in this gene are the cause ofglycogen storage disease II, also known as Pompe's disease, whichis an autosomal recessive disorder with a broad clinical spectrum.Three transcript variants encoding the same protein have been foundfor this gene.
