Biochemistry is a study of chemical process in living organisms. Energy is generated in metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids.

Glycogenesis

Glycogen is synthesized as energy storage in liver during well fed state. Glycogenesis occurs in cytosol. It synthesizes the glycogen from ╬▒-D-glucose. Glycogenesis goes through the following phases: 1. Synthesis… Read more »
