The physiology of sugar-cane. III. Characteristics of sugar uptake in slices of mature and immature storage tissue. IV. Effects of inhibitors on sugar accumulation in storage tissue slices



Aust. J. biol. Sci 13: 203-20; 221-31. bibl. 37; 221-31, bibl. 18



Sugar uptake took place in 2 stages. The first, dependent on external sugar concentration, was a movement into the apparent free space, the second an active accumulation process. Accumulation occurred against a 10-100-fold concentration gradient and was associated with a 30-40% increase in respiration. There was no starch synthesis, sucrose was not hydrolysed prior to accumulation, and sucrose uptake inhibited glucose uptake.
