Liver glycogen in type 2 diabetic mice is randomly branched as enlarged aggregates with blunted glucose release

Abstract

Glycogen is a vital highly branched polymer of glucose that is essential for blood glucose homeostasis. In this article, the structure of liver glycogen from mice is investigated with respect to size distributions, degradation kinetics, and branching structure, complemented by a comparison of normal and diabetic liver glycogen. This is done to screen for… (More)
