Abstract

Starch, the major component of rice grain, consists of amylose and amylopectin. SSIIa, a key soluble starch synthase involved in the biosynthesis of rice amylopectin, is a major factor that controls the gelatinization temperature of rice grain. Extensive work has been done and impressive progress has been made in elaborating the function of the gene encoding SSIIa (OsSSII-3). However, the systematic expression analysis of OsSSII-3 is still rare.
