Phloem unloading and turgor-sensitive transport: factors involved in sink control of assimilate partitioning



Phloem unloading and turgor-sensitive transport: factors involved in sink control of assimilate partitioning



Physiologia Plantarum 65(3): 331-339



Results of studies on assimilate unloading in different sink organs (including developing legume seeds and cereal grains, sugarcane stalks, and nectaries) are reviewed, and possible mechanisms and sites of phloem unloading and the concept of sink strength in relation to high solute concentration in the sink apoplast (turgor-sensitive transport) are discussed.
