Glycogen Storage Diseases
Glycogen is a branched polymer of glucose, which serves as a reservoir of glucose units. The two largest deposits in mammals are in the liver and skeletal muscle but many cells are capable of synthesizing glycogen. Its accumulation and utilization are under elaborate control by a variety of enzymes.
