Tuber starch amylose content is associated with cold-induced sweetening in potato.

Cold-induced sweetening (CIS) is the accumulation of reducing sugars in potato tubers at low storage temperatures. It is undesirable because it result...

SNPs in genes functional in starch-sugar interconversion associate with natural variation of tuber starch and sugar content of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.).
Starch accumulation and breakdown are vital processes in plant storage organs such as seeds, roots, and tubers. In tubers of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) a small fraction of starch is converted into the reducing sugars glucose and fructose. Reducing

Engineering Potato Starch with a Higher Phosphate Content.
Phosphate esters are responsible for valuable and unique functionalities of starch for industrial applications. Also in the cell phosphate esters play a role in starch metabolism, which so far has not been well characterized in storage starch. Lafori

Gluten-free starch noodles from sweet potato with reduced starch digestibility and enhanced protein content.
Sweet potato starch (SPS) noodles despite being gluten-free, has low nutritional value as it lacks proteins, minerals, vitamins etc. The objective of this study was to develop gluten-free starch noodles from sweet potato with enhanced protein content

Activation of Nitrogen-Fixing Endophytes Is Associated with the Tuber Growth of Sweet Potato.
Endophytic nitrogen-fixing organisms have been isolated from the aerial parts of field-grown sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas). The (15)N dilution method, which is based on the differences in stable nitrogen isotope ratios, is useful for measuring nitro

Mapping of quantitative trait loci for tuber starch and leaf sucrose contents in diploid potato.
Most QTL for leaf sucrose content map to positions that are similar to positions of QTL for tuber starch content in diploid potato. In the present study, using a diploid potato mapping population and Diversity Array Technology (DArT) markers, we iden

Molecular and biochemical characterization of a potato collection with contrasting tuber carotenoid content.
After wheat and rice, potato is the third most important staple food worldwide. A collection of ten tetraploid (Solanum tuberosum) and diploid (S. phureja and S. chacoense) genotypes with contrasting carotenoid content was subjected to molecular char

Induced mutations in the starch branching enzyme II (SBEII) genes increase amylose and resistant starch content in durum wheat.
Starch is the largest component of the wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) grain and consists of approximately 70-80% amylopectin and 20-30% amylose. Amylopectin is a highly-branched, readily digested polysaccharide, whereas amylose has few branches and for

The potato tuber mitochondrial proteome.
Mitochondria are called the powerhouses of the cell. To better understand the role of mitochondria in maintaining and regulating metabolism in storage tissues, highly purified mitochondria were isolated from dormant potato tubers (Solanum tuberosum '

Retrogradation of Maize Starch after High Hydrostatic Pressure Gelation: Effect of Amylose Content and Depressurization Rate.
High hydrostatic pressure (HHP) has been employed to gelatinize or physically modify starch dispersions. In this study, waxy maize starch, normal maize starch, and two high amylose content starch were processed by a HHP of the order of 600 MPa, at 25

Development of formulae for estimating amylose content, amylopectin chain length distribution, and resistant starch content based on the iodine absorption curve of rice starch.
Not only amylose but also amylopectin greatly affects the gelatinization properties of rice starch and the quality of cooked rice grains. We here characterized the starches of 32 rice cultivars and evaluated the relationship between their iodine abso
