- How is glycogen metabolism controlled in muscle? KEY
- note "futile cycles" in phosphorylation/dephosphorylation
of proteins - what effect do they have on control? response?)
- What is the energy advantage of storing glucose as glycogen
- How does this advantage come about?
- What is the % quantitative advantage?
- Is the storage of glucose as glycogen in muscle an energetic
advantage to the organism overall?
- If not, why do it? (more than one answer!).
