Storyboard Text

  • Oh, what happened, Bernard?
  • I just found out that carbohydrates are mainly stored as glycogen in liver and muscles.
  • You won't believe what i've just dicovered !
  • That's interesting, please elaborate.
  • First, the glucose molecules is converted into the active form UDP-glucose which then enters the liver to be stored.
  • But, what if there is no existing glycogen?
  • inside the liver, UDP-glucose is added into an existing branches of an existing glucogen molecules
  • Then a protein called glycognin acts as pre-existed glucose
  • That's great, how about regulation?
  • it occurs when the blood glucose level is low
  • 
  • that's fascinating!hope you win the baly medal
  • Thanks, wish me luck
