Digestion of starch and alpha-amylase

Factors affecting relationship between starch and alpha-amylase Amylose and amylopectin, the two families of homopolysaccharides constituting starch, during their biosynthesis within vegetable cells, are deposited in highly organized particles called granules. Granules have a partially crystalline structure and diameter ranging from 3 to 300 ┬Ám. The access of the alpha-amylase, the enzyme that catalyzes the […]
