Disease relevance of sps

  • These results and the lack of evidence for sucrose accumulation in Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 lead to the conclusion that expression of the sps gene plays no obvious role in adaptation to osmotic stress in this species [1].
  • The putative Synechocystis sps gene was cloned from genomic DNA by PCR amplification and expressed as a His6-tagged amino-terminal fusion protein in Escherichia coli [1].

High impact information on sps


Chemical compound and disease context of sps


Biological context of sps

  • The maximal light-saturated rates of photosynthesis in leaves from tomato plants expressing the Synechocystis SPS were the same as those from wild-type plants [4].

Associations of sps with chemical compounds

  • Tomato plants expressing the maize SPS showed 2-3-fold increases in SPS activity, increased partitioning of photoassimilate to sucrose and up to 58% higher maximal rates of photosynthesis [4].
