Glycogen metabolism & gluconeogenesis -Carbohydrate metabolic pathways for glucose homeostasis
Liver glycogen Muscle glycogen maintains blood glucose. supplies energy during muscle contraction.
Introduction Storage form of carbohydrates in animals Sites: Liver & muscle Glycogen: Functions Liver glycogen is used to maintain blood glucose. Muscle glycogen supplies energy during muscle contraction.
Glycogenesis It is the synthesis of glycogen from glucose. Tissue : Liver & muscle Intracellular site : Cytosol Requirements : Glycogen primer UTP, ATP Reactions : Synthesis of UDP-Glucose. Adding glucose units to glycogen primer to form linear chain of glycogen by glycogen synthase Formation of branches by branching enzyme to form glycogen.

Glycogenolysis It is the degradation of glycogen stored in liver and muscle to glucose. Glycogenolysis is not the reverse of the glycogenesis but is a separate pathway . Tissue : Liver & muscle Intracellular site : Cytosol Reactions : Action of glycogen phosphorylase. Action of debranching enzyme. Formation of glucose -6 - phosphate.

Regulation of glycogen metabolism
Regulation of glycogen metabolism Glycogenesis and gluconeogenesis are controlled by the enzymes glycogen synthase and glycogen phosphorylase. Regulation of these enzymes is accomplished by 2 mechanisms 1.Covalent modification -brought about by Hormones 2. Allosteric regulation. -brought about by substrates
Regulation of glycogen metabolism... glycogen synthase and glycogen phosphorylase are said to be RECIPROCALLY REGULATED That is, when one enzyme is active, the other one is inactive. RECIPROCALLY REGULATION is brought about by hormones, by COVALENT MODIFICATION OF THE 2 ENZYMES.
COVALENT MODIFICATION OF THE 2 ENZYMES -Addition or removal of a group (phosphate group) makes the enzyme either active or inactive. glycogen phosphorylase is active in PHOSPHORYLATED Form. (inactive in dephoshorylated form) glycogen synthase is active in DEPHOSPHORYLATED Form. (inactive in dephoshorylated form)
Hormonal regulation -mainly by 3 hormones; 1. epinephrine in fasting state 2.glucagon 3. insulin-In fed state
Regulation of glycogen degradation by c AMP During fasting condition and muscle contraction…… Glucagon,Epinehrine,Ca++ c AMP Via protein kinase and phosphorylase kinase Glycogen phosphorylase b (dephosphorylated Inactive) Glycogen phosphorylase a (phosphorylated active) Glycogenolysis
Regulation of glycogen formation by c AMP During fasting condition and muscle contraction…… Glucagon,Epinehrine,Ca++ c AMP Via protein kinase and phosphorylase kinase Glycogen synthase a (dephosphorylated active) Glycogen synthase b (phosphorylated inactive) Glycogenesis stopped
Regulation of glycogen formation by insulin During fed state and in resting muscle …… insulin phosphatase PO4 Glycogen synthase b (phosphorylated inactive) Glycogen synthase a (dephosphorylated active) Glycogenesis++
Regulation of glycogen degradation by insulin During fed state and in resting muscle …… insulin phosphatase PO4 Glycogen phosphorylase a (phosphorylated active) Glycogen phosphorylase b (dephosphorylated inactive) Glycogenolysis stopped
Allosteric regulation. • Glucose 6-po4, and ATP are allostearic modulators. • They activate • Glycogen synthase • Inhibit glycogen phoshorylase

Glycogen storage disorders These are a group of genetic disease that result from a defect in an enzyme required for glycogen synthesis or degradation . The enzymes defect may be either generalized (affecting all tissues) or tissue-specific (liver, muscle, kidney, intestine, myocardium) They result in either formation of glycogen that has an abnormal structure or the accumulation of excessive amounts of normal glycogen in specific tissues.
Glycogen storage disorders Type Name Deficient enzyme Features I Von gierke’s disease Glucose- 6phosphatase Hepatomegaly, fasting hypoglycemia, lactic acidosis, hyperuricemia II Pompe’s disease Lysosomal maltase Accumulation of glycogen in lysosomes of liver, heart, muscle. Death before 2yrs
III Limit dextrinosis/ Cori’s disease Debranching enzyme IV Amylopectinosis/ Branching Anderson’s enzyme disease Accumulation of highly branched polysaccharide-limit dextrin. Fasting hypoglycemia ,hepatomegaly Accumulation of glycogen with few branches .mild hypoglycemia hepato splenomegaly
V McArdle’s Muscle disease phosphorylase II Accumulation of glycogen in muscles. Exercise intolerance
Gluconeogenesis Definition The synthesis of glucose from non – carbohydrate substrates. Substrates lactate Glycerol Glucogenic amino acids Propionate Sites: Liver (90%) kidney (10%) Sub cellular sites: Partly mitochondrial & partly cytosolic
Significance of gluconeogenesis 1.Maintenance of blood glucose,when glycogen stores are depleted. -Tissues such as brain , RBC , require a continous supply of glucose as a source of energy . Liver glycogen meets these needs for 12-18 hrs .As the glycogen stores starts depleting, gluconeogenesis ensures continous supply of glucose to tissues . 2. removes the products of metabolism eg; lactate produced in the muscle , propionate and glycerol.
Death from alcohol overdose is due to hypoglycemia due to reduced gluconeogenesis!!!
Characteristics Glycolysis and gluconeogenesis share the same pathway but in opposite direction. Gluconeogenesis utilizes all the seven enzymes of glycolysis catalyzing reversible reactions Gluconeogenesis also utilizes four special enzymes (the so called key enzymes of gluconeogenesis) for catalyzing the reversal of the three irreversible reactions of glycolysis
Glucose- 6- phosphatase is only present in liver and kidney but not in the muscle. Thus muscle cannot provide blood glucose by gluconeogenesis.
Reactions of gluconeogenesis 1. Carboxylation of pyruvate to oxaloacetate 2. Transport of oxaloacetate to cytosol 3. Decarboxylation of cytosolic oxaloacetate to phospho enol pyruvate (PEP). 4. Dephosphorylation of fructose -1,6bisphosphate to fructose-6- phosphate 5. Dephosphorylation of glucose -6phosphate to glucose

5. Dephosphorylation of glucose -6-phosphate to glucose Glucose- 6- phosphatase is only present in liver and glucose- 6-phosphatase kidney but not in the muscle.
