Glycogenolysis - Definition


Definition


Glycogenolysis is the process by which the glycogen present in the liver is transformed into glucose, to be released into the blood. This metabolic production of glucose is done in three steps, or hydrolysis reactions, which allow enzymes to "liberate" the glucose in the liver and muscles, release it into the bloodstream, and naturally regulate the rate of glycaemia. Glycogenolysis is thus what is called a hyperglycemic mechanism, which is triggered according to the needs of the organism.
