glycogen

Branched polymer of D-glucose (mostly a (1-4)-linked, but some a (1-6) at branch points). Size range very variable, up to 105 glucose units. Major short-term storage polymer of animal cells, and is particularly abundant in the liver and to a lesser extent in muscle. In the electron microscope glycogen has a characteristic 'asterisk/star' appearance. ...

Glycogen

The form of glucose found in the liver and muscles.

Glycogen

A substance made from multiple glucose molecules. Sometimes called 'animal starch'. It is stored in liver and muscle cells and can be converted to glucose when needed. The glucose in liver glycogen is put back into the blood when required. That in muscle cells is not, as they lack the necessary enzymatic machinery to export glucose into the blo......

Glycogen

A polysaccharide the body uses for energy storage; it is made up of chains of glucose molecules. When the body has depleted the free glucose in the blood, the liver breaks down glycogen into more glucose.
