Υποκυτταρικός εντοπισμός μεταφορέων σακχάρων σε κύτταρα σόργου (sorghum bicolor).
Subcellular localization of sugar transporters in sorghum cells (sorghum bicolor)
Photosynthesis and carbon assimilation take place in the mesophyl cells of the
leaf. Carbon distribution is the procedure where the assimilation products are
distributed across the plant from the photosynthetic tissues. Τhe mostly
described genes which control the sucrose transport in the phloem code for the
sucrose transporters (SUTs). The characterization of the sugar transporter
genes will open new research orizons in the control of the assimilated carbon
distribution in the plants. In this project, two cDNA clones (putative sugar
transporters: sb4YFP and sb6YFP) were studied with known sequences, from the
databases and they were characterized as sugar transporters based on their
analysis of their aminoacid sequences which are coded by the two (under study)
genes sb4YFP and sb6YFP.
