These studies use starch synthesis mutants to quantify the contribution of assimilatory starch to whole plant growth and form. Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh plants were used with null plastid phosphoglucomutase (T Caspar, SC Huber, CR Sommerville, [1986] Plant Physiol 79; 1-7) or 7% of wild-type ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase (T-P Lin, T Caspar, CR Sommerville, J Preiss [1988] Plant Physiol 88; 1175-1179). The daily turnover of starch and the rate of biomass increase in the mutants and the… CONTINUE READING
