Abstract

Glycogenin is the self-glucosylating enzyme that primes mammalian and yeast glycogen synthesis. It proved to be the long-suspected, covalently bound protein component of glycogen. One of the most difficult aspects in elucidating the role of glycogenin was to learn the nature of its covalent bond to glycogen.
