Purification of a beta-Amylase that Accumulates in Arabidopsis thaliana Mutants Defective in Starch Metabolism.

Abstract

Amylase activity is elevated 5- to 10-fold in leaves of several different Arabidopsis thaliana mutants defective in starch metabolism when they are grown under a 12-hour photoperiod. Activity is also increased when plants are grown under higher light intensity. It was previously determined that the elevated activity was an extrachloroplastic beta-(exo… (More)
