Annotations

birn_annot:curationStatusuncurated
definitionCytoplasmic bead-like structures of animal cells, visible by electron microscope. Each granule is a functional unit with the biosynthesis and catabolism of glycogen being catalyzed by enzymes bound to the granule surface (Gene Ontology). Appears as small, electron dense particles 20-40 nm in diameter. Glycogen is difficult to fix in vivo so amounts may be underestimated (Peters, Palay and Webster).
