A Simple Endpoint Assay for Starch-Degrading Enzymes.
Kroen, William K.
American Biology Teacher, v60 n2 p140-43 Feb 1998
Since many of the important energy-transferring pathways involve synthesis or degradation of biological macromolecules, observations of the enzymes responsible for starch breakdown provide a useful case study. Provides a short, one-step assay for the enzymes amylase and amyloglucosidase. Topics covered include goals, preparation, assay procedure, expanded activities, data analysis, and discussion. (PVD)
