Assimilate unloading from maize (Zea mays L.) pedicel tissues



Assimilate unloading from maize (Zea mays L.) pedicel tissues



Plant Physiology 83(1): 131-136



Sugar and 14C-assimilate release from the pedicel tissue of attached maize kernels was studied following treatment with solute concn of <800 mM. Exposure and collection times ranged from 3 to 6 h. Sugar and 14C-assimilate unloading and collection in agar traps was reduced by 25 and 43%, resp., following exposure to 800 mM mannitol. Inhibition of unloading was not specific to mannitol, since similar concn of glucose, fructose or equimolar glucose + fructose resulted in comparable inhibition.
