BIOC13 Week 8: Glycogen Compare and contrast the different types of glucose polymers? Where are they found? How do the different glucose polymers from plants impact our health/digestion? How does this compare to consumption of glucose as a monosaccharide (simple sugar)? What is glycogen and why is it necessary? What are the steps involved in glycogen synthesis and glycogen breakdown? How are each of these processes regulated? How are they coordinated to ensure only 1 is active at a time? How do function and regulation differ in muscle vs liver? What signaling pathways maintain cellular energetic homeostasis? When is AMPK active and what are the consequences of this activity? When is mTORC1 active and what are the consequences of this activity? Covers Textbook Chapters 24 and 25 Assigned Reading : Chapter 25.2: How is glycogen metabolism regulated to prevent synthesis and degradation from occurring at the same time? Explain how/why a defect in an enzyme in glycogen metabolism could impact blood glucose levels and organ function.
