Enzymic Mechanism of Starch Breakdown in Germinating Rice Seeds


The formation of amylase isozymes in germinating rice (Oryza sativa) seeds was studied by isoelectric focusing on polyacrylamide gel disc electrophoresis. Time sequence comparisons of the amylase zynmogram were made between extracts from gibberellic acid-treated embryoless and embryo-attached 1half-endosperm of rice seeds. In both cases, 4 major and 9 to 10… (More)
