At1g05610: APS2 (ADP-glucose pyrophoshorylase small subunit 2)

Encodes the small subunit of ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase. The small subunit is the catalytic isoform responsible for ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase activity. The presence of the small subunit is required for large subunit stability. Two isoforms of the small subunit (ApS1 and ApS2) have been described. ApS2 is a minor small subunit isoform present in all plant tissues tested.
