Biochemistry Notes for Class 12 Topic “Carbohydrate Metabolism – Biosynthesis of Glycogen” Complete Notes for Class 12

Biosynthesis of Glycogen

The goal of glycolysis, glycogenolysis, and the citric acid cycle is to conserve energy as ATP from the catabolism of carbohydrates. If the cells have sufficient supplies of ATP, then these pathways and cycles are inhibited. Under these conditions of excess ATP, the liver will attempt to convert a variety of excess molecules into glucose and/or glycogen.
