The breakdown of [ Glycogen ] A polysaccharide comprising of highly-branched glucose chains, with a similar structure to amylopectin but is more highly branched. Glycogen is the only carbohydrate form of energy storage in animals, found primarily in the liver and muscles. More into [ Glucose, D-glucose, Dextrose ] A monosaccharide with the molecular formula C6H12O6. The principle isomer of glucose is D-glucose (dextrose). It is the product of photosynthesis and the building block of a number of important carbohydrate polymers, including cellulose. In More via the [ Enzyme ] A biochemical substance that acts as a catalyst, resulting a specific biochemical reaction. More glycogen phosphorylase.
