Trehalose, a common microbial disaccharide, has been reported to be toxic to plants, and plant trehalase has therefore been hypothesized to function as a detoxifying enzyme. To test this, aseptically grown soybean (Glycine max L. Merr.) plantlets were supplied with trehalose. The plants accumulated trehalose only when validamycin A, a potent trehalase inhibitor, was added as well. Under these conditions, they accumulated trehalose to up to 8% of the dry weight in their primary leaves without… CONTINUE READING
