Phosphorylase is an enzyme that catalyzes the production of glucose phosphate from glycogen and inorganic phosphate. Ribbon diagram of the catalytically perfect enzyme TIM. Factor D enzyme crystal prevents the immune system from inappropriately running out of control. ... In chemistry and biology, catalysis is the acceleration of the reaction rate of a chemical reaction by means of a substance, called a catalyst, that is itself unchanged chemically by the overall reaction. ... Glycogen is the principal storage form of glucose in animal cells. ... In chemistry, a phosphate is a polyatomic ion or radical consisting of one phosphorus atom and four oxygen. ...

Phosphorylase - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (194 words)
Phosphorylase is a family of allosteric enzymes that catalyze the production of glucose-1-phosphate from a polyglucose such as glycogen, starch or maltodextrin.
More generally, phosphorylases are enzymes that catalyze the addition of a phosphate group from an inorganic phosphate (phosphate+hydrogen) to an acceptor.
Phosphorylase a is the active form of glycogen phosphorylase that is derived from the phosphorylation of the inactive form, phosphorylase b.
Interaction between Glycogen Phosphorylase and Sarcoplasmic Reticulum Membranes and Its Functional Implications -- ... (5449 words)
Binding of glycogen phosphorylase b to SR membranes is accompanied by inhibition of its activity in the presence of AMP.
The polysaccharide synthesized by phosphorylase b activity is linear (Graves and Wang, 1972), and the spectral characteristics of the complex of the polysaccharide synthesized by SR membranes with I
The concentration of phosphorylase b in the supernatant (free phosphorylase b) was determined by measuring the concentration of PLP as described under ''Materials and Methods.`` The concentration of phosphorylase b bound to the membrane was calculated as the difference between total and free phosphorylase b.
