No large or small starches are never be proteins, because they are carbohydrates. Starch is made up glucose sugar repeats. Starch serve as a storage molecule in plants. They can provide energy when needed by digesting to simple sugar such as glucose.

How is starch stored in plants?

Plant starch begins as glucose. Starch in plants is stored in the leaves in the chloroplasts. Not all plants store food in the form of starch.

What are the general characteristics of plants?

The general characteristics of plants are that a plant is a multicellular, eukaryotic organism with cellulose-rich cell walls and chloroplasts that has starch as the primary carbohydrate food reserve. Plants are primarily terrestrial, autotrophic (capable of making their own food) organisms. Most plants contain chlorophylls a and b and xanthophylls (yellow pigments) as well as carotenes (orange pigments).

Is starch made up of simple proteins?

No; starch is made of carbohydrates.

Which plants store starch?

Why do plants need the photosynthesis?

Plants need photosynthesis for energy. They cannot directly live on the energy from the sun. It is absorbed by specific pigments in the chloroplasts (found in green plant parts) and via photosynthesis stored as starch. This starch is later used as an energy reserve. Hence the food chain starts.

What polysacccharide do plants store in plastids?

Starch is stored in plants. Starch is made up of glucose.

What is the structure of amyloplast?

Amyloplasts have no pigment and are organelles found in some plant cells. Amyloplasts are structures that store starch for certain plants.

Is amyloplast where the proteins and starches and oil for the cell stored?

Amyloplasts are used for the synthesis and storage of starch. Proteins are usually stored in the Golgi Apparatus. As for the plants oils, that is different depending on the plant.

What is the name given to areas in plant cells that store starch and pigment molecules?

The areas in plants that store starch and pigment molecules are organelles. The main organelles are plastids. Chloroplasts are photosynthesizing plastids. Chromoplasts are plastids that store pigments, though some pigments, such as pink, purple and anthocyanins are usually stored in the vacuole of cells. Amyoplasts are plastids that store starches.

Do starches use proteins?

Starch is found in plants as a energy store. They make simple sugars such as glucose when there is need of energy. Starch uses the protein beta amylase to be degraded in to simple sugar molecules.
