From bacterial glycogen to starch: understanding the biogenesis of the plant starch granule

Annual Review of Plant Biology

Sep 25, 2003

Steven Ball, Matthew K Morell

Abstract

Plants, green algae, and cyanobacteria synthesize storage polysaccharides by a similar ADPglucose-based pathway. Plant starch metabolism can be distinguished from that of bacterial glycogen by the presence of multiple forms of enzyme activities for each step of the pathway. This multipl...read more
