[ [ Glycogenolysis ] The breakdown of glycogen into glucose via the enzyme glycogen phosphorylase. More ]
The breakdown of [ Glycogen ] A polysaccharide comprising of highly-branched glucose chains, with a similar structure to amylopectin but is more highly branched. Glycogen is the only carbohydrate form of energy storage in animals, found primarily in the liver and muscles. More into [ Glucose, D-glucose, Dextrose ] A monosaccharide with the molecular formula C6H12O6. The principle isomer of glucose is D-glucose (dextrose). It is the product of photosynthesis and the building block of a number of important carbohydrate polymers, including cellulose. In animals, glucose is the defining sugar of the blood. It is obtained from directly from dietary glucose, and from the More via the [ Enzyme ] A biochemical substance that acts as a catalyst, resulting a specific biochemical reaction.
