Quick Reference

The cycle of biochemical reactions involving a two-way flow of products between muscles and the liver. During the cycle, muscle glycogen is broken down to lactic acid, transported to the liver and converted to glucose. The glucose can either be passed back to the muscles to serve as an energy source or be stored in the liver as glycogen.
