Invertases are sucrose hydrolyzing enzymes often associated with plant tissues acting as physiological sinks, and plant galls are physiological sinks. We investigated several types of invertase and their potential benefits in galls of the aphid Hormaphis hamamelidis. Invertase activities in galls differed from those in leaves throughout the growing season. Vacuolar invertase activities (per g FW) were always greater in galls than leaves. In contrast, cell wall invertase activities per g FW… CONTINUE READING
