The time course of glycogen accumulation in the rat liver was studied during postnatal development from birth up to 15 months of age. A significant increase in glycogen was detected in the liver from 5-6 days onwards and reached its maximum level at 30-50 days of age. The increase in glycogen accumulation in the liver was accompanied by an increase in the level of plasma insulin. Glycogen in the liver increased linearly for the first 9 days and then reached its maximum at around 50 days of age. A relatively higher level of glycogen synthase activity was detected from 10-20 days of age. The amount of glycogen phosphorylase in the liver was increased from 1-4 days and thereafter was relatively constant. These results suggest that glycogen accumulation in the liver is dependent upon insulin and that the increase in hepatic glycogen synthase may be in response to the increase in the plasma insulin level.BEGIN:VCALENDAR
