The transporters responsible for sugar uptake into non-photosynthetic sink tissues in plants, such as roots and flowers, have not been fully identified and analyzed. Plants encode around 100 putative sugar transporters within the major facilitator superfamily, yet only a few have been studied. Here we report the analysis of a sugar alcohol permease homolog (AtPLT5, At3g18830) from Arabidopsis. A wide range of sugars including hexoses, pentoses, tetroses, a sugar acid, and sugar alcohols but not… CONTINUE READING
