DescriptionSucrose cleavage is an essential reaction for higher plant cells to initiate intermediary metabolism and to direct its carbon into the host of essential compounds derived therefrom for maintaining the cells of intact plants.This review will focus on: the concentrations of sucrose available to plant cells; some biochemical traits of sucrose cleavage enzymes; the development of sinks and sink strength in several plants; and then, based on these data, and integrated model will be presented on sucrose as a signal molecule during plant sink cell development.
