This enzyme is glycogen synthase, which helps remove glucose from the blood and store it as glycogen .
Glucagon stimulates conversion of glycogen to glucose for use by the cells as energy.
In that condition, the body becomes less efficient in converting glucose into glycogen and, instead, stores it as fat.
When you eat carbs, they break down into glucose, which is stored as glycogen in the muscles and liver.
If there is room available in the liver and muscles, glucose is taken up and stored as glycogen .
The relative anti-inflammatory and glycogenic activity is expressed as relative to cortisol as the standard.
Two larger pieces consisted of clearly nondysplastic squamous epithelium with glycogenic acanthosis.
There were also esophageal glycogenic acanthosis and hyperplastic polyposis in the antrum accompanied by Helicobacter pylori-related gastritis.
It is a glycogenic amino acid, which means that it can be converted to D-glucose and glycogen if needed by the body.
From the perspective of the gastroenterologist, the presence of glycogenic acanthosis and hamartomatous polyps should suggest the diagnosis of Cowden's syndrome.
