Starch metabolism in tubers of transgenic potato (Solanum tuberosum) with increased ADPglucose pyrophosphorylase.

Abstract:

The aim of this work was to use tubers from transgenic lines of potato (Solanum tuberosum) containing increased amounts of ADPglucose pyrophosphorylase to study the role of this enzyme in the control of starch synthesis. A 4-5-fold increase in activity of the enzyme, achieved by transformation with the Escherichia coli ADPglucose pyrophosphorylase gene glgC-16, had no detectable effect on the starch content of developing or mature tubers. No significant effects were found on the contents of A...
