A research group has just elucidated the structure of a sugar transport protein that is unique to plants. The new structure can help explain how plant organs - such as pollen - develop properly, and give ideas as to why some subspecies of wheat are resistant to fungal attacks.

New insight into unique sugar transport in plants

A small research group at Aarhus University has just elucidated the structure of a sugar transport protein that is unique to plants. The new structure can help explain how plant organs - such as pollen - develop properly, and give ideas as to why some subspecies of wheat are resistant to fungal attacks.
