Sugar sensing and signalling networks in plants

Biochem Soc Trans. 2005 Feb;33(Pt 1):269-71. doi: 10.1042/BST0330269.


Plant sugar signalling operates in a complex network with plant-specific hormone signalling pathways. Hexokinase was identified as an evolutionarily conserved glucose sensor that integrates light, hormone and nutrient signalling to control plant growth and development.
