dc.description.abstract An enzyme, starch phosphorylase (Pho), was tested to see if it could have a role in starch synthesis in developing wheat plants. During starch synthesis the activity levels of Pho1, the messenger RNA and the corresponding protein increased. This indicates that Pho has a role in starch synthesis. There are two mechanisms proposed to explain how Pho1 could be involved in starch synthesis. Both involve transferring a glucosyl unit that could be recycled back into starch synthesis. en_US
