  • The most biologically important thing to remember about Glycogen is that it is the fast acting energy stores in animals. If i needed to any physical activity my body would break down the glycolegen so i could use the glucose within it.

My Adopted Child, Glycogen

  1. 1. My Adopted Child, Glycogen<br />Officially adopted December 11, 2009 by Kim Koob <br />Glycogen<br />12/11/09<br />Kimberly A. Koob<br />
  2. 2. development<br />Multiple glucose molecules bonded and formed a chain<br />My baby, glycogen, a polysaccharide, was formed<br />Glycogen is very active and helpful<br />Glycogen helps keep me physically fit<br />
  3. 3. Glycogen’s Necessities<br />Like the two glucose molecules that make up glycogen, it is made of hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon<br />Hydrogen<br />Carbon<br />Oxygen<br />
  4. 4. Glycogen’s Biological Parents<br />Glycogen’s parents are the monosaccharide subunit glucose<br />They formed a chain and at about every 8 to 10 glucose units, glycogen branches.<br />
  5. 5. Glycogen’s Clique<br />Glycogen has the hydroxyl functional group (-OH)<br />This group is polar and attracts water molecules<br />
  6. 6. The Family<br />Glycogen is a member of the storage polysaccharide family<br />Some cousins are amylose and amylopectin, forms of starch<br />Portrait<br />Family<br />
  7. 7. Glycogen’s Favorite Activities<br />Baby’s First Shoes!!<br />Like the rest of her family, glycogen stores sugar for fuel for the body when it needs it<br />Because of her makeup, she is very good at breaking up sugars and supplying them when really needed<br />When the body moves and needs fuel, glycogen is always reliable and does her job<br />
  8. 8. Glycogen’s Character<br />Glycogen likes to be in the liver and muscles and sometimes, when I can’t find her, she’s hiding out in white blood cells and kidneys<br />Today (12/16/09) glycogen underwent hydrolysis for the first time!<br />I was running and needed energy so she broke down the glucose to give my body energy<br />We found out sad news today that her cousin, another glycogen, is over-produced and there is not enough insulin to limit it, so he caused the body to have diabetes<br />Baby’s First Hydrolysis!<br />
  9. 9. Why I will be a Good Parent<br />My new baby, Glycogen <br />I will use glycogen very often because I am a runner<br />I will appreciate glycogen’s hard work to keep my blood sugar steady, again because I am active and need the energy<br />Every child wants to be appreciated!<br />I know that glycogen will slowly deplete if I don’t eat more and replenish it, so I will be sure to do my part and take in more sugars daily<br />
