Synonyms: 1,4-alpha-D-glucan:phosphate alpha-D-glucosyltransferase activity, 1,4-alpha-glucan phosphorylase activity, polyphosphorylase activity

Definition: Catalysis of the reaction: 1,4-alpha-D-glucosyl(n) + phosphate = 1,4-alpha-D-glucosyl(n-1) + alpha-D-glucose 1-phosphate. The name should be qualified in each instance by adding the name of the natural substrate, e.g. maltodextrin phosphorylase, starch phosphorylase, glycogen phosphorylase.
