Previous results (TJ Buckhout, Planta [1989] 178: 393-399) indicated that the structural specificity of the H(+)-sucrose symporter on the plasma membrane from sugar beet leaves (Beta vulgaris L.) was specific for the sucrose molecule. To better understand the structural features of the sucrose molecule involved in its recognition by the symport carrier, the inhibitory activity of a variety of phenylhexopyranosides on sucrose uptake was tested. Three competitive inhibitors of sucrose uptake were… CONTINUE READING
