  • Anabolism [r]: Biological processes that build larger molecules from smaller ones, and increase the size of bones, organs and muscles. [e]
  • Glucose [r]: A monosaccharide (or simple sugar) and an important carbohydrate in biology, used by the living cell as a source of energy and metabolic intermediate. [e]
  • Glycogenesis [r]: Conversion of glucose to glycogen, in which glucose molecules are added to chains of glycogen for storage, which is stimulated by insulin from the pancreas. [e]
  • Glycogenolysis [r]: Breakdown conversion of glycogen to glucose, which occurs in the liver and is stimulated by glucagon from the pancreas and adrenaline from the adrenal medulla. [e]
  • Glycogen [r]: Polysaccharide that is the main form of carbohydrate storage in animals and occurs primarily in the liver and muscle tissue. [e]
  • Liver [r]: A vital organ of humans and other vertebrates, it is the largest solid organ in the human body. [e]
  • Metabolism [r]: The modification of chemical substances by living organisms. [e]
  • NADPH [r]: A major reducing agent in biological systems. [e]
