Photosynthetic carbon metabolism was investigated in antisense Arabidopsis lines with decreased expression of sucrose phosphate synthase (SPS) and cytosolic fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase (cFBPase). In the light, triose phosphates are exported from the chloroplast and converted to sucrose via cFBPase and SPS. At night, starch is degraded to glucose, exported and converted to sucrose via SPS. cFBPase therefore lies upstream and SPS downstream of the point at which the pathways for sucrose synthesis… CONTINUE READING
