Sugar-regulated control of α-tubulin in maize cell suspension culture


The data reported here shows that α-tubulin, the subunit of microtubulin in the cytoskeleton, is regulated by sugars. A 48-h sugar-depletion treatment in BMS maize cell suspension culture medium led to a marked reduction in the levels of α-tubulin mRNA and protein. This response was reversible; the addition of metabolizable sugars led to a rapid increase in… (More)
