Sugar status regulates mechanisms controlling growth and development of plants. We studied the effects of sucrose at a genome-wide level in dark-grown 4-day-old Arabidopsis thaliana seedlings, identifying 797 genes strongly responsive to sucrose. Starting from the microarray analysis data, four up-regulated (At5g41670, At1g20950, At1g61800, and At2g28900) and four down-regulated (DIN6, At4g37220, At1g28330, and At1g74670) genes were chosen for further characterisation and as sugar sensing… CONTINUE READING
