Sugar signaling of fructan metabolism: New insights on protein phosphatases in sucrose-fed wheat leaves.


Protein phosphatase type 2A (PP2A) activity is required for the sucrose induction of fructan metabolism in wheat leaves, as shown in experiments with the addition of the specific inhibitor okadaic acid (OA) together with sucrose. However, a decrease in total PP2A activity has been found along sucrose treatment. Here we analyze the effect of sucrose feeding… (More)
