A genomic clone and the corresponding cDNA of a new Arabidopsis monosaccharide transporter AtSTP9 were isolated. Transport analysis of the expressed protein in yeast showed that AtSTP9 is an energy-dependent, uncoupler-sensitive, high-affinity monosaccharide transporter with a K(m) for glucose in the micromolar range. In contrast to all previously(More)
Of the four genes of the Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) INOSITOL TRANSPORTER family (AtINT family) so far only AtINT4 has been described. Here we present the characterization of AtINT2 and AtINT3. cDNA sequencing revealed that the AtINT3 gene is incorrectly spliced and encodes a truncated protein of only 182 amino acids with four transmembrane helices.(More)
The transition from young carbon-importing sink leaves of higher plants to mature carbon-exporting source leaves is paralleled by a complete reversal of phloem function. While sink-leaf phloem mediates the influx of reduced carbon from older source leaves and the release of this imported carbon to the sink-leaf mesophyll, source-leaf phloem catalyzes the(More)
Syncytial feeding complexes induced by the cyst nematode Heterodera schachtii represent strong metabolic sinks for photoassimilates. These newly formed structures were described to be symplastically isolated from the surrounding root tissue and their mechanism of carbohydrate import has repeatedly been under investigation. Here, we present analyses of the(More)
Four genes of the Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) monosaccharide transporter-like superfamily share significant homology with transporter genes previously identified in the common ice plant (Mesembryanthemum crystallinum), a model system for studies on salt tolerance of higher plants. These ice plant transporters had been discussed as tonoplast proteins(More)
Pollen development, as well as pollen germination and pollen tube growth, requires a highly regulated supply of sugars. In this paper we describe the molecular, kinetic, and physiological characterization of AtSTP11, a new member of the H+/monosaccharide transporter family in Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. Heterologous expression in yeast (Saccharomyces(More)
