Related to Glycogen phosphorylase: glycogen synthase


 (fŏs′fər-ə-lās′, -lāz′)
Any of a class of enzymes that catalyze the attachment of a phosphate group to another molecule.


(fɒsˈfɒrɪˌleɪs; -ˌleɪz)
(Biochemistry) any of a group of enzymes that catalyse the hydrolysis of glycogen to glucose-1-phosphate
[C20: from phosphorus + -yl + -ase]


(ˈfɒs fər əˌleɪs, -ˌleɪz, fɒsˈfɔr ə-, -ˈfɒr-)

any enzyme, occurring widely in animal and plant tissue, that in the presence of an inorganic phosphate catalyzes the conversion of glycogen into sugar phosphate.
