Question 5: Enzyme Phosphorylation Induced by Glucagon
The same enzymes that are (de)phosphorylated by insulin action (namely glycogen synthase, glycogen phosphorylase, the PFK-2/FBPase-2 bifunctional enzyme and pyruvate kinase) are phosphorylated via glucagon and/or epinephrine action. Which kinase is responsible for these phosphorylation events?
