Temporal and spatial expression of hexose transporters in developing tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) fruit
Correlative physiological evidence suggests that membrane transport into storage parenchyma cells is a key step in determining hexose levels accumulated in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) fruit (Ruan et al. 1997). Expression of three previously identified hexose transporter genes (LeHT1, 2 and 3) demonstrated that LeHT3, and to a lesser extent LeHT1, are the predominant transporters expressed in young fruit (10 d after anthesis; DAA). Expression of both transporters dropped sharply until...[Show more]
