Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Biological function
Arabidopsis thaliana Tonoplast Monosaccharide Transporter 1 (AtTMT1) encodes a membrane protein, responsible for transferring glucose from the plant cytosol into the vacuolar compartment. Overexpression of AtTMT1 lead to an expression of photosynthesis-related genes, reduced consumption of sugars for cellular respiration, reduced nocturnal loss of CO2, increased sugar export capacity from source leaves, increased the biomass of Arabidopsis seeds, and accelerated early plant development.
