Abstract The behavlor of the glycogen content of the llver of rats treated with cysteamine (10 mg/lOO gr of body weight) and of rats totally irradiated with a lethal dose of x rays (8OO r) after the administration of a protectlve dose of cysteamine was studied. lt was demonstrated that cysteamine determines glycogenolysis which is particularly evident two hours after treatment. The glycogen content of the liver is restored to normal after 24 hours. In totally irradiated animals receiving a protective dose of cysteamine, in the first hours after irradiation a marked glycogenolysis takes place, followed by glycogeno- sythesis, well evldeut 24 hours after irradiation, which restores to normal the glycogen content of the liver.
