Note: a dashed line (without arrowheads) between two compound names is meant to imply that the two names are just different instantiations of the same compound -- i.e. one may be a specific name and the other a general name, or they may both represent the same compound in different stages of a polymerization-type pathway. If an enzyme name is shown in bold, there is experimental evidence for this enzymatic activity.

Glycogen is a glucose-containing polysaccharide, comprised of approximately 95% α-1,4 linkages and 5% α-1,6 branch glucosyl linkages, with an average chain length of 12 to 14 glucose units. ADP-glucose is the glucosyl donor, which is transferred to either a maltodextrin or glycogen primer, forming a new α-1,4-glucosidic linkage. The first enzyme of the pathway, glucose-1-phosphate adenylyltransferase, is rate-limiting. After chain elongation, the formation of the branched α-1,6-glucosidic linkages from the growing polyglucose chain is catalyzed by the glycogen branching enzyme.
