In the future, plants will have additional CO(2) for photosynthesis. However, plants do not take maximal advantage of this additional CO(2) and it has been hypothesized that end product synthesis limitations and sugar sensing mechanisms are important in regulating plant responses to increasing CO(2). Attempts to increase end product synthesis capacity by engineering increased sucrose-phosphate synthase activity have been generally, but not universally, successful. It was found that plants… CONTINUE READING
