The location of the phloem within a plant, and its vulnerability to disruption, make it a difficult tissue to study and therefore non-invasive studies of phloem functionality are important. Here we compare, phloem transport, measured non-invasively, in wild type Arabidopsis thaliana, and transposon-insertion mutants for AtSUC1 or AtSUC2, giving in vivo information on the importance of these sucrose transporters for phloem transport. The suc2 mutant showed an increase in both phloem leakage and...[Show more]
