High impact information on ATSUC5/SUC5

  • To demonstrate the function of AtSUC5, the corresponding cDNA was used to complement a sucrose uptake-deficient yeast mutant, thus confirming its sucrose transport capacity [1].
  • The sucrose transporter gene AtSUC5 was studied as part of a programme aimed at identifying and studying the genes involved in seed maturation in Arabidopsis [1].
  • Functional comparison of the AtSUC5 transporter with previously characterized plant sucrose or monosaccharide transporters revealed that biotin transport may be a general and specific property of all plant sucrose transporters (sucrose/biotin-H+ symporters) [2].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of ATSUC5/SUC5
