The discovery of glycogenin as a self-glucosylating protein that primes glycogen synthesis has significantly increased our understanding of the structure and metabolism of this storage polysaccharide. The amount of glycogenin will influence how much glycogen the cell can store. Therefore, the production of active glycogenin primer in the cell has the potential to be the overall rate-limiting process in glycogen formation, capable of overriding the better understood hormonally controlled… CONTINUE READING
