e-Amylase (EC an enzyme which catalyzes an e (1-4) endoglycolytic cleavage of amylose and amylopectin. During cereal seed germination, a number of hydrolytic enzymes including e-amylases and proteases are produced to hydrolyze starch and proteins to provide energy and building blocks for seedling growth. The eamylase has been of considerable interest to plant biologists primarily because exogenously added gibberellic acid (GA3) promotes the synthesis and secretion of large amounts of… CONTINUE READING
