Sugar accumulation cycle in sugar cane. III. Physical and metabolic aspects of cycle in immature storage tissues



Sugar accumulation cycle in sugar cane. III. Physical and metabolic aspects of cycle in immature storage tissues



Plant Physiol 38: 348-54. bibl. 17



There are 3 distinct cell compartments through which sugars move when accumulated from the medium into storage tissue discs. The compartments, termed the outer space, the metabolic compartment and the storage compartment, are characterized metabolically and by their behaviour with respect to diffusion of sugars and anions. Sucrose is inverted in passing from the medium into the storage compartment where it reappears as sucrose. Inversion is mediated by an acid invertase in the outer space which is only a part of the total acid invertase activity of the tissue. At least a part of the remaining activity is in the storage compartment. A cyclic scheme in which sugars are moved to the storage compartment by an active process and lost from the compartment by diffusion is proposed. This system is termed the sugar accumulation cycle. Various interrelations between growth and sugar storage in sugar cane plants are discussed in relation to the cycle. -Colon. Sugar Refin. Co. Ltd, Indooroopilly, Qd.
