Glycogenolysis

  1. 1. Carbohydrate metabolismGLYCOENOLYSIS
  2. 2. GLYCOENOLYSIS• Break down of glycogen into glucose• It takes place in liver ad muscles• Key enzyme is glycogen phosphorylase
  3. 3. Reactions• Shortening of chains• Removal of branches• Glucose-1-phosphate to G-6-Phosphate
  4. 4. Other pathway• Lysosomal degradation(alpha amylosis)• Gemma-amylosis
  5. 5. Regulation• Activation of Phosphorylase• Activation of inhibitor-1• Role of calcium in glycogenolysis in muscles
