Sugar translocation in peppermint (Mentha piperita L.)



Sugar translocation in peppermint (Mentha piperita L.)



Diss. Abstr, 24: 4937



Single leaves or shoots were allowed to photosynthesize in an atmosphere containing C14O2, and subsequently the amount of C14 moving throughout the plant was measured. The oligosaccharides verbascose, stachyose and raffinose were found to be the main sugars translocated. The hexoses galactose, glucose and fructose were not translocated. Root temperatures above and below 80 degrees F. limited the movement of assimilates to the roots.
