Sugars produced by photosynthesis are transported to the berries as sucrose via the phloem and imported into the fleshy cells through the plasma membrane and they accumulate in the vacuoles as glucose and fructose during ripening. Therefore, this process requires sugar transporter activity of plasma membrane as well as tonoplast. To examine sugar transport processes in Vitis vinifera, a fulllength cDNA clone encoding a monosaccharide transporter designated as VvTMT2 (Vitis vinifera Tonoplast… CONTINUE READING
