Binding Crevice Accommodates 4-5 Sugar Residues
Function: acid-base catalyst.
Regeneration of Glucose-1,6-bisP
Use hydrolysis of PPi to drive glycogen synthesis!
Why not UDP-Glucose Pyrophosphorylase?
Phosphorylase a (more active) Glucose
Phosphorylase b (less active) ATP G6P AMP
Gycogen Synthase a (high activity)
Glycogen Synthase b (low activity) ADP Pi G6P
