Granule-bound starch synthase [GBSS; EC 24.1.21] determines the presence of amylose in reserve starches. Potato plants were transformed to produce antisense RNA from a gene construct containing a full-length granule-bound starch synthase cDNA in reverse orientation, fused between the cauliflower mosaic virus 35S promoter and the nopaline synthase(More)
Suspension grown cells of Datura innoxia and Scopolia carniolica were tested for their glucosylation capacity and some factors affecting the efficiency of the reaction were studied. Cells at the end of the exponential growth phase showed a high glucosylation capacity. Light conditions had little effect on the bioconversion reaction. For the substrates(More)
