Parameters derived from non-linear fits (Figure6) for enzymatic hydrolysis of control and SBE RNAi4.1 amylose-only starch
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

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.

na: not applicable.
