Associations of Daucus carota with chemical compounds

  • To understand how sucrose (Suc) is transported from source leaves to developing tap roots of carrot (Daucus carota L.), we cloned two cDNAs (DcSUT1 and DcSUT2) for proteins with homologies to plant Suc/H+ symporters [16].
  • Here we show that carrot (Daucus carota) AGPs can contain glucosamine and N-acetyl-D-glucosaminyl and are sensitive to endochitinase cleavage [17].
  • Carrot (Daucus carota L.) cells plasmolyzed within 30 s after adding sorbitol to increase the osmotic strength of the medium from 0.2 to 0.4 or 0.6 osmolal [18].
  • A single fructose-1,6-bisphosphate (FBP) aldolase has been detected in extracts from carrot storage roots (Daucus carota L.). The enzyme was purified 850-fold to electrophoretic homogeneity and a final specific activity of 26.3 mumols of FBP utilized/min per mg of protein [19].
  • Seedlings of carrot (Daucus carota L. cv. Red Cored Chantenay) formed somatic embryos when cultured on medium containing abscisic acid (ABA) as the sole source of growth regulator [20].
