Summary Plant development is influenced by changes in the levels and types of sugars produced metabolically. The normal (N), habituated organogenic (HO) and habituated nonorganogenic (HNO) sugar beet cell lines originate from the same mother plant but exhibit distinct levels of morphogenesis and differentiation, and contain different levels of simple carbohydrates. We aim to elucidate whether differences in the abundance and activity of enzymes involved in carbohydrate metabolism and sugar…

Roles of cell-wall invertases and monosaccharide transporters in the growth and development of Arabidopsis.
The large number of AtcwINV and AtSTP genes, together with complex patterns of expression for each, and the possibility that each protein may have more than one physiological function, provides the plant with the potential for a multiplicity of patterns of monosaccharide utilization to direct growth and differentiation or to respond flexibly to changing environmental conditions.
Sugar Levels Modulate Differential Expression of Maize Sucrose Synthase Genes.
The differential response of the two sucrose synthase genes to sugars provides a potential mechanism for altering the pattern of enzyme distribution in response to changing carbohydrate status and also for adjusting the sucrose-metabolizing capacity of importing cells relative to levels of available photosynthetic products.
Sugar sensing in higher plants.
It is proposed that hexokinase may have dual functions and may act as a key sensor and signal transmitter of sugar repression in higher plants and the involvement of glycolysis and other metabolic pathways is eliminated.
Metabolizable and Non-Metabolizable Sugars Activate Different Signal Transduction Pathways in Tomato1
The strong activation of MAPKs and the fast and transient induction of Lin6 expresssion by the fungal elicitor resembles the effect of turanose, palatinose, and fluoro-Suc and indicates that non-metabolizable sugars are sensed as stress-related stimuli.
The sucrose-cleaving enzymes of plants are crucial for development, growth and carbon partitioning.
