Researches on the genetic basis of starch pasting and gelatinization properties will provide foundation of maize improvement for quality, feed and industrial applications. Maize gene Zmisa2, encoding an isoamylase-type starch debranching enzyme, plays important roles in starch biosynthesis. In this study, the genomic sequences of the gene Zmisa2 in 72 elite maize inbred lines were obtained, and the nucleotide polymorphisms and haplotype diversity were detected. In addition, seven pasting and… CONTINUE READING
