Default Insulin and glycogen phosphorylase kinase relation?

Is it safe to say Insulin doesnt affect glycogen phosphorylase kinase in anyway at all?

NO , as i know insulin regulates glycogen phosphorylase by second messenger G protein system ,, after ingestion , Insulin activates protein phosphatase - 1 >> dephosphorylating glycogen phosphorylase ( inactive ) ! So , preserving Glycogen .
