Protein Phosphorylation in Amyloplasts Regulates Starch Branching Enzyme Activity and Protein–Protein Interactions
Protein phosphorylation in amyloplasts and chloroplasts of Triticum aestivum (wheat) was investigated after the incubation of intact plastids with γ-32P-ATP. Among the soluble phosphoproteinsExpand

Analysis of Protein Complexes in Wheat Amyloplasts Reveals Functional Interactions among Starch Biosynthetic Enzymes1[C][W][OA]
Protein-protein interactions among enzymes of amylopectin biosynthesis were investigated in developing wheat (Triticum aestivum) endosperm. Physical interactions between starch branching enzymesExpand

A review of starch‐branching enzymes and their role in amylopectin biosynthesis
Starch‐branching enzymes (SBEs) are one of the four major enzyme classes involved in starch biosynthesis in plants and algae, and their activities play a crucial role in determining the structure andExpand

Glucan affinity of starch synthase IIa determines binding of starch synthase I and starch-branching enzyme IIb to starch granules.
The sugary-2 mutation in maize (Zea mays L.) is a result of the loss of catalytic activity of the endosperm-specific SS (starch synthase) IIa isoform causing major alterations to amylopectinExpand

The amylose extender mutant of maize conditions novel protein-protein interactions between starch biosynthetic enzymes in amyloplasts.
The amylose extender (ae(-)) mutant of maize lacks starch branching enzyme IIb (SBEIIb) activity, resulting in amylopectin with reduced branch point frequency, and longer glucan chains. RecentExpand

Effects of an experimentally applied increase in ammonium on growth and amino‐acid metabolism of Sphagnum cuspidatum Ehrh. ex. Hoffm. from differently polluted areas
SUMMARY Sphagnum cuspidatum Ehrh. ex. Hoffm. was removed from a relatively remote moorland site at the Migneint, N. Wales and from Holme Moss, S. Pennines — a site that has been subjected toExpand

Subcellular distribution of enzymes of the oxidative pentose phosphate pathway in root and leaf tissues
sketolase, ribose 5-phosphate isomerase, ribulose 5-phosphate 3-epimerase) appear to be restricted to between phosphorylated 3-, 4-, 5-, 6-, and 7-carbon sugars catalysed by the enzymes riboseExpand

Allelic variants of the amylose extender mutation of maize demonstrate phenotypic variation in starch structure resulting from modified protein–protein interactions
amylose extender (ae−) starches characteristically have modified starch granule morphology resulting from amylopectin with reduced branch frequency and longer glucan chains in clusters, caused by theExpand
