  • Two starch synthase clones, zSSIIa and zSSIIb, were isolated from a cDNA library constructed from W64A maize endosperm. zSSIIa and zSSIIb are 3124 and 2480 bp in length, and contain open reading frames of 732 and 698 amino acid residues, respectively. The deduced amino acid sequences of the two clones share 58.1% sequence identity. Amino acid sequence identity between the zSSIIa and zSSIIb clones and the starch synthase II clones of potato and pea ranges between 45 to 51%. The predicted amino… CONTINUE READING
