NDP-glucose:(1->4)-alpha-D-glucan 4-alpha-D-glucosyltransferase
Unlike EC 2.4.1.11, glycogen(starch) synthase and EC 2.4.1.21, starch synthase, which use UDP-glucose and ADP-glucose, respectively, this enzyme can use either UDP- or ADP-glucose. Mutants that lack the Wx (waxy) allele cannot produce this enzyme, which plays an important role in the normal synthesis of amylose. In such mutants, only amylopectin is produced in the endosperm [3] or pollen [5].

EXPRESSION

UNIPROT
LITERATURE
GBSS activities decline significantly at the late grain-filling stage under rainfed conditions
-
GBSS activity is highest 28 days after anthesis
-
maximal expression of granule-bound starch synthase occurs in mid-stage of endosperm development, GBSS activity of Wanjing 9522 grains increases after anthesis and reaches ist maximal activity at day 18 and keeps this high level for about 6 days, and then decreases steadily
-
the GBSS activity in grains of two kernel types shows a similar pattern throughout the filling period, i.e. reaches the highest peak at 28 days after anthesis and then decreases rapidly
-
the starch associated SSIIa protein content is negatively correlated with the fraction of chains with DP6-11 and short chain ratio
-
the starch associated SSIIa protein content is positively correlated with gelatinization temperature and level of amylopectin chains with degree of polymerization 12-24
