The effect of different glycerol concentrations upon the activity and allosteric regulation of phosphorylase b has been studied. Glycerol increased the apparent Km of the allosteric regulator and decreased the V of the enzyme. The enzyme activity was reduced by glycerol, according to the temperature, similar to the effect of decreasing the concentration of AMP.
