The breakdown of glycogen to glucose.
Glycogenolysis is the process whereby glycogen is broken down into glucose, a process that occurs when the body requires energy.
the process of converting glycogen to glucose
Breakdown of glycogen to glucose, which occurs primarily in liver and muscle cells. The process is stimulated by a rise in cAMP following epinephrine stimulation of cells and, in muscle, by a rise in Ca2+ following neuronal stimulation.
the conversion of glycogen to glucose in the liver.
Glycogen breakdown and the liberation of glucose molecules.
The conversion of glycogen into glucose by the body Blood glucose levels are maintained by glycogenolysis
The breakdown of glycogen into glucose molecules.
Glycogenolysis is the catabolism of glycogen by removal of a glucose monomer and addition of phosphate to produce glucose-1-phosphate. This derivative of glucose is then converted to glucose-6-phosphate, a potent intermediate in glycolysis. The hormones glucagon and epinephrine stimulate glycogenolysis.
