To be utilized in cellular catabolism it must first be converted to glucose 6-phosphate by the enzyme phosphoglucomutase. One reason that cells form glucose-1-phosphate instead of glucose during glycogen breakdown is that the very polar phosphorylated glucose cannot leave the cell mebrane and so is marked for intracellular catabolism.
In glycogenesis, free glucose 1-phosphate can also react with UTP to form UDP-glucose, by using the enzyme UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase. It can then return to the greater glycogen structure via glycogen synthase.
