The aim of this work was to examine the consequences of the heterologous expression of a spinach (Spinacia oleracea L.) sucrose transporter (SoSUT1) in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.). Many studies have indicated that reduction of the expression of this class of sucrose transporter has deleterious effects on plant growth and development; however, until now… CONTINUE READING
