Despite the chemical differences in allosteric and covalent modification of mammalian skeletal muscle glycogen synthase, results from enzyme kinetics, crystal structure data, and site-directed mutagenesis studies suggest that these two regulatory mechanisms behave and interact in a manner characteristic of classic Monod-Wyman-Changeux heterotropic effectors. This allows for a succinct description of glycogen synthase kinetics despite its numerous phosphorylation states.
