The effects of temperature on starch and amylose accumulation, fine structure of amylopectin and activities of some enzymes related to starch synthesis in developing rice endosperms was examined. Two early indica rice varieties were used, differing in amylose concentration (AC, %), namely Jia 935 (low AC) and Jia 353 (high AC). The results showed that the effects of high temperature on AC and amylopectin fine structure were variety-dependent. High temperature caused a reduction in amylose… CONTINUE READING
