Research project: Physiological role of sucrose and amino acid permeases in higher plants

Currently Active: 
Yes

Sucrose and amino acids represent major transported forms of assimilated carbon and nitrogen in plants.

Membrane transport proteins are crucial for the distribution of these solutes from areas of synthesis (sources) to areas of consumption or storage (sinks).We are investigating the role of sucrose and amino acid permeases in the partitioning of assimilates using Arabidopsis and castor bean.
