Unravelling the biological roles of charged carbohydrates

Abstract:

The phosphate and sulfate esters of carbohydrates are widespread in nature, where they partake in a variety of signalling roles. This thesis focuses on the involvement of trehalose-6-phosphate (Tre-6-P) in regulating plant growth, and the function of sulfated carbohydrates in the immune response.

In plants, Tre-6-P is a critical messenger that conveys environmental information for the control of metabolic state. Beneficial natural conditions lead to an increase in the in vivo concen...
