The functions of SWEET (Sugar Will Eventually be Exported Transporter) proteins have been studied in a number of crops, but little is known about their roles in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.), a model plant for studying stachyose metabolism and phloem function. Here, we identified 17 cucumber SWEET genes (CsSWEETs), located on chromosomes 1-6, and classified them into four clades. Two genes from each clade were selected for spatiotemporal expression, subcellular localization, and substrate… CONTINUE READING
