General information
Name of the gene or DNA sequence
Granule-bound starch synthase gene
Category of DNA sequence
  • Protein coding sequence
Is the gene / DNA sequence is a synthetic molecule?
Donor organism
Donor organism
Solanum tuberosum - Potato, SOLTU
Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
Granule-bound starch synthase
Biological function
The granule-bound starch synthase (GBSS) enzyme is responsible for the synthesis of amylose in the amyloplasts of potato tubers. Inhibition of GBSS leads to the accumulation of amylopectin in the starch fraction.
Related trait(s) or use(s) in biotechnology
  • altered carbohydrate composition: increased amylopectin content
