Effect of rice wx gene on carbohydrate accumulation and amylase activity of germinating grain

Effect of rice wx gene on carbohydrate accumulation and amylase activity of germinating grain

Chinese Journal of Rice Science 8(1): 21-26

Results from a study of 2 pairs of waxy and non-waxy nearly isogenic lines suggest that gene wx controls synthesis of amylopectin in the early stage of grain development. beta -Amylase activity was higher and that of alpha -amylase lower in germinating waxy grains compared with non-waxy grains.
