    • Adenosine diphosphate glucose pyrophosphatase: a plastidial phosphodiesterase that prevents starch biosynthesis 

      Rodríguez López, Milagros; Baroja Fernández, Edurne Upna; Zandueta Criado, Aitor; Pozueta Romero, Javier Upna (National Academy of Sciences, 2000)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      A distinct phosphodiesterasic activity (EC 3.1.4) was found in both mono- and dicotyledonous plants that catalyzes the hydrolytic breakdown of ADPglucose (ADPG) to produce equimolar amounts of glucose-1-phosphate and AMP. ...
    • Most of ADP-glucose linked to starch biosynthesis occurs outside the chloroplast in source leaves 

      Baroja Fernández, Edurne Upna; Muñoz Pérez, Francisco José; Zandueta Criado, Aitor; Morán Zorzano, María Teresa; Viale, Alejandro M. Upna; Alonso Casajús, Nora; Pozueta Romero, Javier Upna (National Academy of Sciences, 2004)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Sucrose and starch are end products of two segregated gluconeogenic pathways, and their production takes place in the cytosol and chloroplast of green leaves, respectively. According to this view, the plastidial ADP glucose ...
