Description

General description

Glycogen is a branched polymer of glucose synthesized by animal cells for energy storage and release. It is constructed of predominantly α1→4 glycosidic bonds with branches created through α1→6 glycosidic bonds.

Packaging

1, 5, 10 g in poly bottle

500 mg in poly bottle

Preparation Note

Prepared by a modification of the procedure of Bell, et al., Biochem. J., 28, 882 (1934).

Application

• Glycogen from rabbit liver has been use as a standard for measurement of the hepatic glycogen content.
• In the1,4-α-D gIucan:orthophosphate α-glucosyl transferase assay, it has been used in the assay mixture.
• It has also been used as a standard for myocardial tissue glycogen analysis.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glycogen from rabbit liver helps in maintaining blood glucose levels by regulating the release of glucose in between meals. It also provides energy during sudden, strenuous activity. Two important areas of glycogen storage are the liver and skeletal muscle.
