Identify the true statements regarding alpha-1,6 linkages in glycogen

Identify the true statements regarding alpha-1,6 linkages in glycogen.

  • The number of sites for enzyme action on a glycogen molecules is increased through alpha-1,6 linkages.
  • New alpha-1,6 linkages can only form if the branch has a free reducing end.
  • The reaction that forms alpha-1,6 linkages is catalyzed by a branching enzyme.
  • These linkages can only be formed on a chain that is exactly 11 residues long.
  • Branching increases glycogen solubility.
