Starch, total amylolytic and phosphorylase activities were determined in lentil cotyledons during the first days of germination. Several independent criteria show that the amylolytic activity is due mainly to an amylase of the alpha type. Starch is degraded slowly in the first days; during this time, alpha- and beta-amylase activity are very low, while phosphorylase increases and reach a peak on the 3rd day. On the 4th day, there is a more rapid depletion of starch which coincides with an… CONTINUE READING
