Carbon turnover and sucrose metabolism in the culm of transgenic sugarcane producing 1-Kestose
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2007-12)
Carbon partitioning was investigated in sugarcane (Saccharum spp. hybrids) that was genetically modified with sucrose: sucrose 1-fructosyltransferase (1-SST; EC 220.127.116.11) from Cynara scolymus. This enzyme catalyses the ...
Enzyme profiling of a range of sugarcane tissue types with different levels of sucrose
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-12)
The study had two main objectives: 1) to investigate specific enzyme activity profiles at various developmental stages and to determine possible implications for sucrose metabolism, 2) to incorporate enzyme activity ...
