Solution

The correct option is B False
The conversion of glucose to glycogen is called glycogenesis.
Glycogenesis is stimulated by the hormone insulin. Insulin has profound effects on glucose metabolism in liver cells, stimulating glycogenesis and inhibiting glycogenolysis. Insulin is produced in the pancreas (not pituitary).
So, the correct option is 'False'.
