An exogenous supply of nicotianamine is essential for the redistribution of59iron via the symplast and the phloem to newly developing organs in de-rooted seedlings of the nicotianamine-less tomato mutantchloronerva. This observation supports the idea that nicotianamine could function as a translocator of iron within the symplast and the phloem.
