The miniature1 (mn1) seed phenotype in maize (Zea mays) is due to a loss-of-function mutation at the Mn1 locus that encodes a cell wall invertase (INCW2) that localizes exclusively to the basal endosperm transfer cells (BETCs) of developing seeds. A common feature of all transfer cells is the labyrinth-like wall-in-growth (WIG) that increases the plasma(More)

Sucrose accumulation into sink cells consists of multiple components collectively characterized by a biphasic kinetics curve. Whereas the hyperbolic phase at low external sucrose concentration denotes a membranebound, carrier-mediated component, the linear nonsaturable phase at higher concentrations has been suggested to represent facilitated diffusion.
