Abstract: From a mixt. of dextrins, prepd. by α-amylolytic degradation of potato starch, 2 homogeneous macrodextrin fractions were sepd. on a Sephadex G-25 column. Both were characterized by mol. wt., periodate oxidn., and α- or β-amylolysis, hence by the degree of branching. Macrodextrins thus prepd. are branched on each 4th or 3rd D-glucose unit, whereas branching points in native amylopectin are located on each 5th to 9th D-glucose unit on av. The heterogeneity of branching with longer, linear chains and areas of higher branching d. is typical for amylopectin.
