Glycogenolysisnoun

(biochemistry) The production of glucose-1-phosphate by splitting a glucose monomer from glycogen using inorganic phosphate

Gluconeogenesisnoun

(biochemistry) The metabolic process in which glucose is formed, mostly in the liver, from non-carbohydrate precursors

Glycogenolysis

Glycogenolysis is the breakdown of glycogen (n) to glucose-1-phosphate and glycogen (n-1). Glycogen branches are catabolized by the sequential removal of glucose monomers via phosphorolysis, by the enzyme glycogen phosphorylase.

Gluconeogenesis

Gluconeogenesis (GNG) is a metabolic pathway that results in the generation of glucose from certain non-carbohydrate carbon substrates. It is a ubiquitous process, present in plants, animals, fungi, bacteria, and other microorganisms.
