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.

Application

Glycogen from bovine liver may be used in carbohydrate storage and metabolism research and to study various enzymes such as alpha-glucosidase(s) (GAA) and glycogen phosphorylase(s) (GPase). Glycogen may be used as a substrate to identify and characterize its metabolizing enzymes.

Preparation Note

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