• Since glycogen cannot be broken down, it accumulates within liver cells, causing these cells to become enlarged and dysfunctional. (nih.gov)
  • Glycogen was found to accumulate as early as 24h after partial hepatectomy, and normal concentrations were reached after 48h if the operation was performed at times other than during the feeding periods. (biochemj.org)
  • Complex carbohydrates are composed of complex sugars known as polysaccharides, of which glycogen is the most prominent example. (encyclopedia.com)
  • These questions will be processed and formulated into researchable questions during the national patient day of the Scandinavian Association for liver Glycogen Storage Diseases in 28-29th of April 2018. (igsdpsp.com)
  • In a final workshop in 2019 these prioritized questions will be formulated into a Top-10 for liver Glycogen Storage Diseases. (igsdpsp.com)
  • Glycogen-targeting subunits bind to glycogen and protein phosphatase 1 (PP1) and facilitate the dephosphorylation of GS and GP, thus activating the former and inactivating the latter. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Among these, protein targeting to glycogen (PTG) (PPP1R3C or PPP1R5), which is expressed in many tissues, has been shown to control glycogen stores in various animal models ( 5 - 7 ). (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Therefore, when effective endurance performance is an objective on multiple occasions within a 24-h period, the restoration of endogenous glycogen stores is the principal factor determining recovery. (mdpi.com)
  • Try to collect samples from around the same region (I typically used the right liver lobe). (bio-protocol.org)
  • For individuals and families who are living with Pompe disease, and for the health care professionals who treat them. (dmoztools.net)
