Maltose is the predominant form of carbon exported from the chloroplast at night. Plants that lack either the chloroplast maltose transporter or disproportionating enzyme 2 (DPE2, EC 2.4.1.25) have excess maltose in leaves. We confirmed that DPE2 is not associated with the chloroplast in Arabidopsis thaliana. Using non-aqueous fractionation methods, we… CONTINUE READING
