Table 4 Parameters derived from non-linear fits (Figure 6 ) for enzymatic hydrolysis of control and SBE RNAi4.1 amylose-only starch

From: Concerted suppression of all starch branching enzyme genes in barley produces amylose-only starch granules

Sample a (%) b (hrs) c (%/hrs) Regression
Control     
native granules 76.1 3.8 na 0.9933
SBE RNAi4.1     
native granules 41.5 5.2 na 0.9839
Control     
gelatinized 86.9 0.27 na 0.9834
SBE RNAi4.1     
gelatinized 67.1 1.0 na 0.9697
Control     
retrograded 76.7 0.15 0.59 0.9818
SBE RNAi4.1     
retrograded 41.4 0.24 1.1 0.9916
  1. A 2 parameters fit, f=ax/(b+x), was used for the native and the gelatinized starches, and a 3 parameters fit, f=ax/(b+x)+cx, was used for the retrograded starch where “a” describes maximum asymptote, “b” time to reach half maximum asymptote and “c” is the linear component only valid for the retrograded sample.
  2. na: not applicable.
