Several redox sensitive enzymes identified in this study can serve as potential targets to control the carbon flux to and from starch during the day and night, respectively. The determined structural basis of the post-translational redox modification of AtSS1 could be extrapolated to other SS isoforms due to high conservation of the Cys545 equivalent among all the SS enzymes.
