Sugar uptake and starch biosynthesis by slices of developing maize endosperm.


(14)C-Sugar uptake and incorporation into starch by slices of developing maize (Zea mays L.) endosperm were examined and compared with sugar uptake by maize endosperm-derived suspension cultures. Rates of sucrose, fructose, and d- and l-glucose uptake by slices were similar, whereas uptake rates for these sugars differed greatly in suspension cultures… (More)
