Abstract

The ability of glucose to assist the action of phosphorylase a phosphatase on phosphorylase a, appears to be mediated through conformational changes in the phosphorylase. The system is an example of control of enzyme activity by regulation of the conformation of the substrate, and parallels the similar effect of AMP in inhibiting the dephosphorylation.
