Where is glycogen stored in the body? – Glycogen is a complex, complex carbohydrate, which in the course of glycogenesis is formed from glucose entering the human body along with food. From a chemical point of view, it is defined by the formula C6H10O5 and is a colloidal polysaccharide having a highly branched chain of glucose residues.
Where is glycogen stored
The resulting glycogen is stored in the form of special granules in the cytoplasm (cytosol) of many cells of the body. The content of glycogen in the liver and muscle tissue is especially high. Muscle glycogen is the source of glucose for the muscle cell (in case of a heavy load), and the hepatic glycogen maintains a normal concentration of glucose in the blood.
