A new mechanism for starch dephosphorylation: insight from the structure of like sex four2.

Abstract

Starch granules are dense, insoluble structures made up of glucan chains that serve as both shortand long-term carbohydrate storage within plants (reviewed in Streb and Zeeman, 2012). It is thought that phosphorylation of glucosyl moieties within the glucan chains solubilizes the granule surface and facilitates starch degradation. Paradoxically, however… (More)
