    Background: Carbohydrate binding module (CBM) and surface binding site (SBS) are two important parts of amylase which respond to the raw starch digestion. They are related to the enzyme ability to adsorb and to catalyze the starch hydrolysis. However, starch processing is still expensive due to...

    To explain the low levels of starch, high levels of (1,3;1,4)-β-glucan, and thick cell walls in grains of Brachypodium distachyon L. relative to those in other Pooideae, aspects of grain development were compared between B. distachyon and barley (Hordeum vulgare L.). Cell proliferation, cell...

    Granule Bound Starch Synthase I (GBSS I) encoded by the waxy gene plays an important role in accumulating amylose during the development of starch granules in barley. In this study, we isolated and characterized waxy alleles of three waxy (GSHO 908, GSHO 1828 and NA 40) and two non-waxy barley...

    Barley grain starch is formed by amylose and amylopectin in a 1∶3 ratio, and is packed into granules of different dimensions. The distribution of granule dimension is bimodal, with a majority of small spherical B-granules and a smaller amount of large discoidal A-granules containing the...

    Cassava (Manihot esculenta) is a major source of starch in tropical and subtropical countries. The genomic organization of the granule-bound starch synthase I (GBSS I) in cassava was examined to increase our knowledge of starch biosynthesis and facilitate the production of modified starches in...

    In the study starch samples isolated from wheat, rye and barley grains harvested at various stages of maturity were compared in respect to their structure and molecular weight. During maturation of wheat, rye and barley gram, i.e. in early-waxy, late-waxy and full maturity stages, a change was...

    Glucoamylases, containing starch-binding domains (SBD), have a wide range of scientific and industrial applications. Random mutagenesis and DNA shuffling of the gene encoding a starch-binding domain have resulted in only minor improvements in the affinities of the corresponding protein to their...

    Previously, it has been demonstrated that the glycoside hydrolase family 8 xylanase from the psychrophylic bacterium Pseudoalteromonas haloplanktis (XPH) can bind substrate non-catalytically on the surface of its catalytic module. In the present study, the functional relevance of this secondary...

    Transitory starch metabolism is a nonlinear and highly regulated process. It originated very early in the evolution of chloroplast-containing cells and is largely based on a mosaic of genes derived from either the eukaryotic host cell or the prokaryotic endosymbiont. Initially located in the...

  • The barley amo1 locus is tightly linked to the starch synthase IIIa gene and negatively regulates expression of granule-bound starch synthetic genes. Li, Zhongyi; Li, Dehong; Du, Xihua; Wang, Hong; Larroque, Oscar; Jenkins, Colin L. D.; Jobling, Stephen A.; Morell, Matthew K. // Journal of Experimental Botany;Oct2011, Vol. 62 Issue 14, p5217 

    In this study of barley starch synthesis, the interaction between mutations at the sex6 locus and the amo1 locus has been characterized. Four barley genotypes, the wild type, sex6, amo1, and the amo1sex6 double mutant, were generated by backcrossing the sex6 mutation present in Himalaya292 into...
