Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Arabinoxylan Metabolism in Germinated Barley

Robert Lee, Maria Hrmova, Rachel Burton and Geoffrey Fincher Department of Plant Science, The University of Adelaide, Waite Road, Urrbrae S.A. 5064.

Introduction
Following water uptake and germination of a barley grain, hydrolytic enzymes that are mainly secreted from the scutellar epithelial layer and the aleurone layer, catalyse the depolymerization of starch and protein reserves in the starchy endosperm. Degradation products are subsequently absorbed by the scutellum and translocated to the developing seedling. During commercial malting operations, barley grain is steeped in water and germinated under conditions designed to maximise the modification of the starchy endosperm, but to minimise vegetative growth of the young seedling (Bamforth and Barclay, 1993; Briggs et al., 1981). In both processes enzymic degradation of cell walls in the starchy endosperm is crucial. Because most of the key enzymes are secreted from the aleurone layers, the walls of starchy endosperm cells represent a physical barrier which denies the enzymes free access to their substrates within starchy endosperm cells. As a result, the rapid early removal of the cell wall is of central importance both for the successful germination of the grain (Fincher, 1989) and for the production of a well-modified malt (Bamforth and Barclay, 1993).
