It has long been believed that phosphorylase is involved in the synthesis of starch, which constitutes 70 to 80% of the mature rice grain. Aimi and his associates (1, 2, 3) found that during the ripening process a parallel relationship exists between starch synthesis and phosphorylase activity in rice grains. But we can not exclude the possible existence of… CONTINUE READING
