Influence of hexose-phosphates and carbon cycling on sucrose accumulation in sugarcane spp.
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-12)
Sucrose accumulation, marked by a continuous cycle of synthesis and degradation, is characterised by a shift of carbon away from the insoluble matter and respiratory intermediates into sucrose. Despite this shift, a ...
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 ...
