Which of the following are true of the enzyme glycogen phosphorylase? Select any/all answers that apply.
its activity is dynamically regulated by phosphorylation/dephosphorylation
it utilizes glucose 6-phosphate as a substrate
it generates glucose 6-phosphate as a product
it utilizes inorganic phosphate as a substrate
it catalyzes the hydrolytic cleavage of α(1->4) bonds
All options are correct except option c.
Glycogen phosphorylase is an enzyme that breaks up glycogen into glucose.
option a : the enzyme activity is regulated by phosphorylation
option b: for proper metabolism, the glucose 6-phosphate is reuiqred as starting material.
option d: Inorganic phosphate is required to initiate the reaction, other wise the enzyme will not work.
option e: the enzyme spilts linkage between carbon 1 and carbon 4, thus hydrolytic cleavage of α(1->4) bonds
