Question: What is meaning difference between starch,glycogen & cellulose? Edit
Answer: Starch, glycogen and cellulose are polymers of glucose. They differ in the kind of glucose present and bonds that link the glucose monomers.
Starch is composed of two types of polymers: amylopectin and amylose.
Glycogen is similar to amylopectin in structure, but it branches more frequently.
Cellulose is an unbranched polymer of glucose which is composed of beta glucose molecules.
Starch and glycogen are examples of storage polysaccharides, while cellulose is a example of structural polysaccharide. Edit
