Glycogen Metabolism | Glycogenolysis | Pathway, Enzymes and Regulation
Lesson on Glycogen Metabolism (Glycogenolysis) pathway: Step-by-step overview of the pathway, including regulation, advantages, and disadvantages of glycogenolysis, important enzymes (glycogen phosphorylase) and differences between liver and muscle utilization of glycogen.
Hey everyone, in this lesson you will learn about glycogen metabolism (catabolism of glycogen), how glycogen is broken down and used, where in the body this breakdown occurs, and how glycogen catabolism is regulated.
