Appears to have a function in striated muscle development and regeneration. Defects in ENO3 are the cause of glycogen storage disease type 13 (GSD13). A metabolic disorder that results in exercise-induced myalgias, generalized muscle weakness and fatigability. It is characterized by increased serum creatine kinase and decreased enolase 3 activity. Dramatically reduced protein levels with focal sarcoplasmic accumulation of glycogen- beta particles are detected on ultrastructural analysis. Belongs to the enolase family. 3 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
