It is widely known that some of the starch synthases and starch-branching enzymes are trapped inside the starch granule matrix during the course of starch deposition in amyloplasts. The objective of this study was to use maize SSI to further our understanding of the protein domains involved in starch granule entrapment and identify the chain-length specificities of the enzyme. Using affinity gel electrophoresis, we measured the dissociation constants of maize SSI and its truncated forms using… CONTINUE READING
