Glycogen: major storage form of glucose in animals Large polymer of glucose (up to 10 6 glucose/mcl) Granules of 10-40 nm in the cytosol of most cells

Glycogen metabolism : regulated release and storage of glucose Glycogen degradation : 1) Stepwise release of the terminal 1,4-linked glucose from glycogen (as glucose 1-phosphate ) Entry into metabolism via conversion to glucose 6- phosphate Remodeling of 1,6-branches to permit further degradation Glycogen synthesis : next lecture

Major sites of glycogen storage: Liver and Muscle Community-oriented: liver Degradation and synthesis are regulated to maintain blood glucose homeostasis of the organism. Selfish: muscle Degradation and synthesis are regulated to meet the energy needs of the muscle. Smith, Marks and Lieberman (2005) Marks’ Basic Medical Biochemistry:

Glycogen Degradation 1) Release of Glucose 1-P Enzyme: Glycogen Phosphorylase
Background image of page 10
Glycogen phosphorylase Catalyzes glucose release by phosphorolysis Readily reversible in vitro [glycosidic bond ~ phosphorylester bond] In vivo glycogen degradation is favored: [P i ]/[gluc 1-P] = 100/1
