    Hormones which stimulate glycogenolysis in the liver are Glucagon, catecholamines, Adrenaline thyroxine and sometimes insulin deficiency also stimulate glycogenolysis. Adrenaline is produced due to the condition of stress which stimulates glycogenolysis in the liver of human beings. Glucagon is a hormone, which is produced by alpha cells of the pancreas in the liver. It results in raising the concentration of glucose and fat in the bloodstream and is known to be the important catabolic hormone of the body. It helps in a medication to treat multiple numbers of health issues. It has an effect which is opposite to that of insulin. Thyroxine is the again important hormone secreted into the bloodstream by the thyroid gland in the liver. It is in the inactive form and most of it is generally converted to an active form called triiodothyronine by organs like the liver and kidneys.
