Waxy protein

Correlation analysis between starch properties and single nucleotide polymorphisms of waxy genes in common rye (Secale cereale L.)

M. Meng, Gao, X., Han, L. J., Li, X. Y., Wu, D., Li, H. Z., and Chen, Q. J., Correlation analysis between starch properties and single nucleotide polymorphisms of waxy genes in common rye (Secale cereale L.), vol. 13, pp. 2574-2589, 2014.

To understand the relationships between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the waxy gene and starch parameters in common rye, we performed sequence characterization, enzyme activity testing, amylopectin/amylose ratio evaluation, starch property testing, and correlation analysis. Specific primers were used to clone waxy from 20 rye cultivars. Sequence analysis showed that waxy was 2852 bp, including 11 exons, and sequence similarity across the 20 cultivars was over 98%.
