Evaluation of the glycogenolytic effect of alpha-amylase using radioautography and electron microscopy.

Abstract

The effectiveness of crystalline alpha-amylase and saliva in hydrolyzing newly formed glycogen in liver and muscle was examined. Glycogen synthesis was induced by the administration of H3-glucose to fasting rats or by the incubation of tissue slices in a medium containing H3-glucose. Paraffin sections of Rossman-fixed tissues or small pieces of liver fixed… (More)
