General description

Glycogen is a branched polymer of glucose that serves as the primary short-term energy storage molecule in animals. Glycogen is primarily synthesized in liver and muscle tissue where it can constitute up to 10% of the weight of liver and 1-2% of the weight of muscle tissue. While muscle glycogen is generally utilized locally, liver glycogen serves as an important buffer to regulate blood glucose levels. Glycogen metabolism is dysregulated in diabetes and the glycogen storage diseases due to inborn errors of metabolism.


Glycogen Assay Kit has been used in glycogen quantification. It has also been used to determine the glycogen content in liver, vastus lateralis and muscle homogenates.


Suitable for determining glycogen concentration in various tissues such as liver etc. and cell culture (adherent or suspension cells).


Glycogen concentration is determined by a coupled enzyme assay, which produces a colorimetric (570 nm)/ fluorometric (λex = 535/λem = 587 nm) product, proportional to the glycogen present.

Embryo implantation requires a hospitable uterine environment. A key metabolic change that occurs during the peri-implantation period, and throughout early pregnancy, is the rise in endometrial glycogen content. Glycogen accumulation requires prior cellular uptake of glucose. Here we show that

Hosts of chemoautotrophic bacteria typically have much higher biomass than their symbionts and consume symbiont cells for nutrition. In contrast to this, chemoautotrophic Candidatus Riegeria symbionts in mouthless Paracatenula flatworms comprise up to half of the biomass of the consortium.
