HORMONAL AND ALLOSTERIC REGULATIONS OF GLYCOGEN METABOLISM IN MUSCLES

ABSTRACT/DESCRIPTION


In the human body, glycogen is a branched polymer of glucose stored mainly in the liver and the skeletal muscle that supplies glucose to the blood stream during fasting periods and to the muscle cells during muscle contraction. Glycogen has been identified in other tissues such as brain, heart, kidney, adipose tissue, and erythrocytes, but glycogen function in these tissues is mostly unknown. Glycogen synthesis requires a series of reactions that include glucose entrance into the cell through transporters, phosphorylation of glucose to glucose 6-phosphate, isomerization to glucose 1-phosphate, and formation of uridine 5-diphosphate-glucose, which is the direct glucose donor for glycogen synthesis.
