Sucrose Synthesis


Sucrose is produced by plants, algae and cyanobacteria as an end product of photosynthesis. It is the primary sugar transported from the source tissues to sink tissues by the phloem in most plants. In other non-photosynthetic tissues, sucrose serve as raw material for many metabolic pathways (Ref.1).

Sucrose synthesis starts in the cytosol where two triose-phosphates produce one Fructose-1,6-bisphosphate by the enzyme aldolase. Fructose-1,6-bisphosphate is converted to fructose-6-phosphate by the enzyme...
