FIGURE 23.15 • The reactions of glycogen debranching enzyme. Transfer of a group of three «-(1 n 4)-linked glucose residues from a limit branch to another branch is followed by cleavage of the «-(1 n 6) bond of the residue that remains at the branch point.
Glycogen debranching enzyme
W a- (1-»" 6)-glucosidase activity of debranching enzyme cleaves this residue
Further cleavage by a-amylase
