This work investigated the roles of beta-amylases in the breakdown of leaf starch. Of the nine beta-amylase (BAM)-like proteins encoded in the Arabidopsis thaliana genome, at least four (BAM1, -2, -3, and -4) are chloroplastic. When expressed as recombinant proteins in Escherichia coli, BAM1, BAM2, and BAM3 had measurable beta-amylase activity but BAM4 did(More)
This work investigated the roles of b-amylases in the breakdown of leaf starch. Of the nine b-amylase (BAM)–like proteins encoded in the Arabidopsis thaliana genome, at least four (BAM1,-2,-3, and-4) are chloroplastic. When expressed as recombinant proteins in Escherichia coli, BAM1, BAM2, and BAM3 had measurable b-amylase activity but BAM4 did not. BAM4(More)
