A number of enzymes presumably implicated in starch synthesis were assayed at various stages of endosperm development ranging from 8 days to 28 days after pollination. Activity for invertase, hexokinase, the glucose phosphate isomerases, the phosphoglucomutases, phosphorylase I, uridine diphosphate glucose pyrophosphorylase, and the starch granule-bound nucleoside diphosphate glucose-starch glucosyltransferase was present at the earliest stage of development (8 days) studied. Activity was… CONTINUE READING
