Synopsis

Synopsis

Individual endosperm genes which affect the amylose fraction of corn starch were found to vary in effect due to inherent difference of source stocks. Double and triple recessive combinations of these genes have varying effects on amylose content. The ae gene is involved in the higher amylose endosperm combinations although it shows no corresponding effect on the pollen starch.
