Glycogen is the storage form of carbohydrate for virtually every organism from yeast to primates. Most mammalian tissues store glucose as glycogen, with the major depots located in muscle and liver. The French physiologist Claude Bernard first identified a starch-like substance in liver and muscle and coined the term glycogen, or "sugar former," in the 1850s. During the 150 years since its identification, researchers in the field of glycogen metabolism have made numerous discoveries that are… CONTINUE READING
