Structure and Properties of Starch – part 2

This is the second part of the two-part video exploring the structure of starch. In the last video, we looked at why high levels of dissolved glucose can be a problem for cells. We then looked at the structure of the polysaccharide amylose. In this video, we look at the structure of the other polysaccharide found in starch. This is called amylopectin. We then explore how the structure of starch relates to its function in plant cells
