Glycogen is a molecule that functions as a secondary long-term energy storage. Glycogen is an analogue of starch, and has a similar structure to amylopectin. Glycogen is suitable as a carrier substance for nucleic acids precipitation. Glycogen is an inert carrier which significantly increases the efficiency of extracted DNA and RNA by ethanol precipitation. Glycogen is synthesized from monomers of UDP-glucose by Glycogen synthase. The protein glycogenin is needed to initiate the synthesis of Glycogen.
