Molecular cloning and characterization of granule-bound starch synthase I (GBSSI) alleles from potato and sequence analysis for detection of cis-regulatory motifs

Granule-bound starch synthase (GBSS), an isoform of starch synthase, is responsible for amylose synthesis in all starch containing tissues of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.), and in other plant species. In potato, the importance of GBSSI gene function is realized through a number of published reports on both basic and applied research. Here genomic DNA was… (More)
