Light microscopic images of 70% polished rice endosperm of low-glutelin rice of Tashu-kei 1001 (left panel) and Hyogokitanishiki (right panel). These rices are often used as a raw material for brewing Japanese sake. Storage proteins are stained blue with CBB. The starch granules appear as white spheres.
