The maize (Zea mays) endosperm enzyme, ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase, which produces ADP-glucose from ATP and glucose-l-phosphate, is an important enzyme in the synthesis of starch. ADP-glucose arising from the action of this enzyme is the major, if not sole, donor of glucose for starch biosynthesis. The enzyme is composed oftwo dissimilar subunits encoded by the two unlinked genes, Shrunken-2 (Sh2) and Brittle-2 (Bt2) (1, 2). The enzyme is allosterically activated by 3-phosphoglyceric acid and… CONTINUE READING
