    The Arabidopsis thaliana genome encodes three alpha-amylase-like proteins (AtAMY1, AtAMY2, and AtAMY3). Only AtAMY3 has a predicted N-terminal transit peptide for plastidial localization. AtAMY3 is an unusually large alpha-amylase (93...

    ..Thus, other enzymes/mechanisms must contribute to starch breakdown. We show that the chloroplastic ?-amylase 3 (AMY3) also participates in starch degradation and provide evidence that all three enzymes can act directly at the starch ..
