59 GlycogenA polysaccharide representing the main storage form of glucose in the body, primarily found in the liver and muscles. When carbohydrate energy is needed, muscle gylcogen is converted into glucose for use by the muscle cells, and liver glycogen is converted into glucose for use throughout the body, including the central nervous system
60 GlycogenIn humans, glycogen is made and stored primarily in the cells of the liver and the muscles, and functions as the secondary long-term energy storage (with the primary energy stores being fats held in adipose tissue).Muscle glycogen is converted into glucose by muscle cells and liver glycogen converts to glucose for use throughout the body including the central nervous system.
61 GlycogenGlycogen forms an energy reserve that can be quickly mobilized to meet a sudden need for glucose, but one that is less compact than the energy reserves of triglycerides (lipids).
