Glucose, which plays a central role in providing energy for metabolism, is primarily stored as glycogen. The synthesis and degradation of glycogen are mainly initialized by glycogen synthase (GS) and glycogen phosphorylase (GP), respectively. The present study aimed to examine the glycogen metabolism in fish liver and gills during acute exposure to seawater. In tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) gill, GP, GS and glycogen were immunocytochemically colocalized in a specific group of glycogen-rich… CONTINUE READING
