Mutation of the Plastidial α-Glucan Phosphorylase Gene in Rice Affects the Synthesis and Structure of Starch in the Endosperm[W]
Plastidial phosphorylase (Pho1) accounts for ∼96% of the total phosphorylase activity in developing rice (Oryza sativa) seeds. From mutant stocks induced by N-methyl-N-nitrosourea treatment, weExpand

Identification of the ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase isoforms essential for starch synthesis in the leaf and seed endosperm of rice (Oryza sativa L.)
ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase (AGP) catalyzes the first committed step of starch biosynthesis in higher plants. To identify AGP isoforms essential for this biosynthetic process in sink and sourceExpand

Engineering starch biosynthesis for increasing rice seed weight: the role of the cytoplasmic ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase
ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase (AGPase) controls a rate-limiting step in starch biosynthesis. In cereals, manipulation of this enzyme is a prime target to increase starch production during seedExpand

Rice endosperm-specific plastidial alpha-glucan phosphorylase is important for synthesis of short-chain malto-oligosaccharides.
Previous genetic studies have indicated that the type L alpha-glucan phosphorylase (Pho1) has an essential role during the initiation process of starch biosynthesis during rice seed development. ToExpand

The mouse H19 locus mediates a transition between imprinted and non-imprinted DNA replication patterns.
Genes subject to genomic imprinting generally occur in clusters of hundreds of kilobases. These domains exhibit several gamete of origin-dependent manifestations, including a pattern of asynchronousExpand

Fusarium proliferatum KGL0401 as a New Gibberellin-Producing Fungus
Gibberellins (GAs) play an important role in plant growth and development. Fifteen fungi were isolated from Physalis alkekengi var francheti plant roots, and among them, four isolates showedExpand

Catalytic implications of the higher plant ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase large subunit.
ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase, a key regulatory enzyme of starch biosynthesis, is composed of a pair of catalytic small subunits (SSs) and a pair of catalytically disabled large subunits (LSs). TheExpand

ATP binding site in the plant ADP‐glucose pyrophosphorylase large subunit
The ATP binding region in the catalytically inactive large subunit (LS) of the potato tuber ADP‐glucose pyrophosphorylase was identified and investigated. Mutations at the ATP binding significantlyExpand

Subunit interactions specify the allosteric regulatory properties of the potato tuber ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase.
ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase (AGPase) catalyzes the first committed step of starch synthesis in plants. The potato tuber enzyme contains a pair of catalytic small subunits (SSs) and a pair ofExpand
