  • Amino-acid substitutions were identified that predicted pI values for the alleles that correlated with their mobility on starch gels (Figure 1).

  • Although a large number of studies have been conducted on sugar regulation of starch breakdown by germinating cereal seeds, very little work has focused on determining whether lipid breakdown by germinating oilseeds is also sugar regulated.

  • Soluble sugars, such as glucose and sucrose, have been postulated to act as signaling molecules that help regulate a wide variety of plant developmental and physiological processes [ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 ] . These processes include flowering [ 14 15 16 17 ] , seed germination [ 18 19 20 ] and photosynthesis [ 21 22 ] . One of the most thoroughly characterized sugar-regulated processes is the breakdown of starch by germinating cereal seeds.

  • Exposure to exogenous sugars, such as glucose and sucrose, has long been known to retard rates of starch mobilization in germinating cereal seeds [ 13 23 ] . Therefore, it was of interest to determine whether exogenous sugars also affect rates of lipid mobilization in germinating seeds of plants, such as Arabidopsis thaliana , that store their energy reserves in the form of lipids.

  • During the filling phase all plant resources contribute toward a steady rate of starch accumulation in the starch storage unit.
