Genetic element (GENE)

Granule-bound starch synthase geneEN
Protein coding sequence
Granule-bound starch synthaseEN
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.
