Microsatellites and a single-nucleotide polymorphism differentiate apparentamylose classes in an extended pedigree of US rice germ plasm
Abstract The Waxy gene (Wx) encodes the granule-bound starch synthase responsible for the synthesis of amylose in rice (Oryza sativa). Recently, a polymorphic microsatellite sequence closely linkedExpand

Use of alternate splice sites in granule-bound starch synthase mRNA from low-amylose rice varieties
The rice Waxy gene encodes a granule-bound starch synthase (GBSS) necessary for the synthesis of amylose in endosperm tissue. We have previously shown that a CT microsatellite near theExpand

Association of waxy gene single nucleotide polymorphisms with starch characteristics in rice (Oryza sativa L.)
The waxy gene, which encodes the granule bound starch synthase enzyme, is one of the key genes influencing starch synthesis in the rice endosperm. To investigate functional differences between GBSSExpand

Transcript accumulation and utilization of alternate and non-consensus splice sites in rice granule-bound starch synthase are temperature-sensitive and controlled by a single-nucleotide polymorphism
Granule-bound starch synthase (GBSS), a product of the waxy gene in rice (Oryza sativa L.), is necessary for the synthesis of amylose in the endosperm. In an extended pedigree of 89 rice cultivars,Expand

The effect of the Waxy locus (Granule Bound Starch Synthase) on pasting curve characteristics in specialty rices (Oryza sativa L.)
Starch structure and functionality have a significant impact on the utilization of cereal grains as food and feed. Starch viscosity characteristics are used to characterize rice cooking, processingExpand
