Glycogen is a polysaccharide that serves as a storage form of glucose in cells, particularly in liver and muscle tissues. Metabolic abnormalities of glycogen metabolism, referred to as glycogen storage diseases, include Von Gierke disease, Pompe disease and Cori disease. AkrivisBio’s Glycogen Assay II provides a simple, sensitive method of measuring glycogen levels in biological materials. In the assay, glycogen is hydrolyzed to glucose, which is oxidized to form NADH. The NADH formed then reduces nearly colorless tetrazolium to a highly colored formazan measured at OD 450 nm. The Glycogen Assay II is valuable in various research areas, including glycogen metabolism, energy balance, and glycogen-related disorders.
