Bierry and Gruzewska (1, 2) were the first to eliminate the precipitation of glycogen. In their method the tissue (liver or muscle) is first hydrolyzed .with KOH, then autoclaved with acid; the fluid is treated with mercuric nitrate to remove nitrogenous substances, and in the resulting solution reducing matter is determined by Bertrand’s method. It is assumed that the reduction represents glucose derived from glycogen. Subsequent workers omitted the treatment with alkali. They removed… Expand

A micromethod for the enzymatic estimation of the degree of glycogen ramification.
A method has been devised for the measurement of glycogen ramification in small liver tissue samples, using neutral periodate oxidation of the molecule, followed by determination of the formic acid evolved from the branch ends withFormic acid dehydrogenase, which gave results very similar to the classical methods in which the acid formed is measured titrimetrically.

The effect of fixation on the chemical extraction of glycogen from rat liver
It is concluded that the fixatives used in this study do not significantly affect the yield of chemically extractable glycogen from liver; fixation is extremely rapid; and alcoholic fixatives are not significantly superior to aqueous picric acid fixatives for preservation of chemically extracting glycogen in very small samples of tissue.

Direct enzymatic procedure for the determination of liver glycogen.
The proposed amyloglucosidase, glucose oxidase: peroxidase method has the advantage of rapidity, whereas the traditional method consisting of extraction, precipitation, and acid hydrolysis is not only time consuming, but may also be subject to losses of glycogen in each step. Expand

It was deduced that in four of seven experiments there was a formation of carbohydrate which exceeded the maximum amount which could be formed from the metabolized protein and the glycerol part of the fat. Expand
Glycogenolysis in Aliquots of Glycogen Bodies of the Chick
Glycogen bodies of chicks 1–4 weeks old were isolated, weighed on a Roller Smith torsion balance and homogenized in glass tissue-grinders to change the glycogen concentration in the glycogen body of birds. Expand
Determination of sugars in biological media with thymol in sulphuric acid.
Abstract 1. (1) Solutions of thymol in sulphuric acid have been examined as reagents for the colorimetric determination of glucose. 2. (2) The reaction of these solutions with different sugars andExpand

A rapid and simple photometric method for quantitative estimation of glycogen, e.g., in liver, based on the highly specific reaction of anthrone with glycogen is described, which was demonstrated in duplicate experiments, in recovery studies, and by comparison with other methods used for determination of glycogens.

The glycogen content of the ovary reaches its in July, synchronised with a sharp decrease in the ovarian weight for the process of egg deposition, and a general increase is noticed in carbohydrates and relative weights of most of the tissues for general deposition of food material before winter time.

The effect of adrenaline on the utilization of glucose
Abstract 1. 1. This work was undertaken with the object of investigating whether the rise in blood sugar after adrenaline may at least be partly due to inhibition of glucose uptake by the tissue:Expand
Enzymatic microanalysis of glycogen.
A specific and simple enzymatic method for the determination of glycogen in tissue, with a detection limit of about 1 microgram glycogen (6.2 nmol glucosyl residues) is described. Glycogen isExpand
