Abstract The time sequence analysis of the starch digestion pattern of the thin sectioned germinating rice (Oryza sativa L.) seed specimens using the starch film method showed that at the initial stage amylase activity was almost exclusively localized in the epithelium septum between the scutellum and endosperm. Starch breakdown in the endosperm tissues began afterward; amylase activity in the aleurone layers was detectable only after 2 days. Polyacrylamide gel electrofocusing (pH 4 to 6) revealed nearly the same zymogram patterns between endosperm and scutellum extracts, although additional amylase bands appeared in the endosperm extracts at later germination stages (4 to 6 days). These are presumably attributable to the newly synthesized enzyme molecules in the aleurone cells.
