Slide 1: Glycogen metabolism 1 Glycogen metabolism : Glycogen metabolism Function of glycogen Glycogen is the storage form of carbohydrates in the human body. The major sites of storage are liver and muscle. 1. The major function of liver glycogen is to provide glucose during starvation. When blood glucose level lowers, liver glycogen is broken down and helps to maintain blood glucose level. 2. The function of muscle glycogen is to act as reserve fuel for muscle contraction. Muscle glycogen is depleted after prolonged exercise. 2
