Full length cDNAs encoding a second starch branching enzyme (SBE A) isoform have been isolated from potato tubers. The predicted protein has a molecular mass of 101 kDa including a transit peptide of 48 amino acids. Multiple forms of the SBE A gene exist which differ mainly in the length of a polyglutamic acid repeat at the C-terminus of the protein. Expression of the mature protein in Escherichia coli demonstrates that the gene encodes an active SBE. Northern analysis demonstrates that SBE A… CONTINUE READING
