The anhydrofructose pathway of glycogen catabolism.


In many living forms, glucose is stored in the polymeric form of glycogen and starch as a source of carbon and energy. Upon need, these polymers are broken down to their building block glucose in the presence of water and hydrolases, and glucose 1-phosphate in the presence of phosphate and phosphorylase. In the last decade, we established an alternative… (More)
