In plants, sugars act as signalling molecules that control many aspects of metabolism and development. Arabidopsis plants homozygous for the recessive sucrose uncoupled-6 (sun6) mutation show a reduced sensitivity to sugars for processes such as photosynthesis, gene expression and germination. The sun6 mutant is insensitive to sugars that are substrates for hexokinase, suggesting that SUN6 might play a role in hexokinase-dependent sugar responses. The SUN6 gene was cloned by transposon tagging… CONTINUE READING
