Liver is the main organ, which store the glycogen. It stores about 150 grams of glycogen. Your muscles store about same amount of glycogen.

It's stored as glycogen primarily in the liver but also in muscles. Excess glucose is not stored in bone.


Glycogen is primarily stored in the liver as well as in skeletal muscle, kidney and heart. A single muscle cell therefore is also a small store of glycogen.

yes & it is primarily stored in the cells of the liver & the muscles being held in adipose tissue

Glycogen is used for energy storage by animals. In humans glycogen is made and stored primarily in the cells of the liver and in the muscles. This functions as the secondary long term energy storage.


You have about 150 grams of glycogen stored in Liver and about the same amount of glycogen is stored in muscle tissue together.


It is stored in the liver as glycogen. It is converted into glycogen by insulin.

To get energy from stored glycogen (in the liver), the body must first convert the glycogen into ATP. -JoshuaP


Glycogen and stored in muscles and liver. Insulin converts glycogen into glucose when it is needed.


In humans, glycogen is stored in the liver and muscles. It is sometimes called animal starch.


Are complex sugars that are stored. Glycogen is the way that sugar is stored in animals, starch is the way that sugar is stored in plants.


Doubtful. One would think that any glycogen stored in muscle cells would be producing mitochondrial ATP for use in the sarcomere, the muscle contraction unit.


nope it is stored in the liver


yes, it is stored in astrocyte !


In plants, sugar or glucose is stored as starch where as in animals it is stored as glycogen. For this reason, glycogen is sometimes called animal starch.


Glucose is stored as glycogen in the liver, and the readily amount of glycogen is approx 190g


Glucose is stored as glycogen in muscles and liver.


Glucose is stored in the liver as glycogen.


Energy is stored for later use by converting it to a compound that can be stored. These are glycogen and humans and starch in plants. In humans, insulin is produced by the pancreas which converts glucose (which can't be stored) into glycogen (which can be stored) which is stored in the liver. to convert the glycogen back to glucose when energy is needed the pancreas produces glucagon, this then converts the glycogen to glucose which is ready to be used by the body for energy.
