Maize (Zea mays L.) endosperm suspension cultures are a useful model system for studying biochemical and physiological events in developing maize endosperm. In this report, sugar uptake by the cultures is characterized. Uptake of (14)C-labeled fructose and l-glucose was linear with time, while the rate of uptake of radioactivity from sucrose increased over a 120 min period. Both saturable and linear components of uptake were observed for fructose, glucose, sucrose, 1'-deoxy-1'-fluorosucrose… CONTINUE READING
