Methyl-beta-D-glucopyranoside in higher plants: accumulation and intracellular localization in Geum montanum L. leaves and in model systems studied by 13C nuclear magnetic resonance.


Using (13)C-NMR, methyl-beta-D-glucopyranoside (MeG) was characterized as a major compound in the leaves of the alpine herb Geum montanum L. MeG continuously accumulated during the life span of G. montanum leaves, and accounted for up to 20% of the soluble carbohydrates in aged overwintering leaves, without being reallocated during senescence. Incubating… (More)
