No differences in glycogen synthase (p = 0.9), glycogen phosphorylase (p = 0.9), and glycogen-6-phosphatase (p = 0.7) were apparent between experimental groups (Figures 4(b)-4(d)).

Maslinic acid, a natural inhibitor of glycogen Phosphorylase, reduces cerebral ischemic injury in hyperglycemic rats by GLT-1 up-regulation.
Interestingly, cones express glycogen phosphorylase (Brennenstuhl et al., 2015), suggesting they may use glycogen as an alternative energy source.
The final product is ATP, which is a form of energy storage needed for cellular metabolism [10-15] This hypothesis would have two consequences on the one hand, degradation of glycogen phosphorylase activation or induction of glycogen as it is explained above, this reaction remained upstream of the cascade of biochemical reactions that lead to a complete glycolysis with the results in the formation of ATP, the other possible entry of glucose into hepatocytes through activation of glycogen synthase.

Glucose is cleaved from glycogen branches by the activated form of glycogen phosphorylase. Glycogen phosphorylase b is a stored, inactive form of the enzyme, and is activated to glycogen phosphorylase a to release glucose or phosphorylated glucose units from glycogen (Friedman 1985).
Glycogen phosphorylase is the primary enzyme involved in this breakdown and Aegle marmelos appears to inhibit glycogen phosphorylase, thereby regulating the glycogenolysis pathway and leading to a decrease in the glucose level in the blood (Narendhirakannan et al.
In the Iceland scallop Chlamys islandica, a decrease in the amount of glycogen in the adductor muscle reduced the number of binding sites for the key glycolytic enzyme glycogen phosphorylase, which may explain this scallop's lower activity levels (Brokordt & Guderley 2004a).
Galactosaemia, in fact, often results in hypoglycaemia caused by hepatic accumulation of galactose-1phosphate, which inhibits enzymes of glycogenolysis; including glucose-6-phosphatase, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, phosphoglucomutase and glycogen phosphorylase. The inadvertent administration of insulin to such affected neonates, in whom blood glucose is already dangerously low, obviously has the effect of lowering glucose levels further.
Expression of glycogen phosphorylase, responsible for glycogen catabolism was increased 4-fold by P4 when compared to controls (P<0.05).
Glycogen breakdown is mediated by glycogen phosphorylase. Glycogen is an immediate source of glucose for cardiac tissue to maintain its metabolic homeostasis [21].
