- Trehalose metabolism and signalingMatthew J Paul
Center for Crop Genetic Improvement, Rothamsted Research, Harpenden, Hertfordshire, AL5 2JQ, United Kingdom
Annu Rev Plant Biol 59:417-41. 2008..The discovery of trehalose metabolism has been one of the most exciting developments in plant metabolism and plant science in recent years. The field is fast moving and this review highlights the most recent insights...
- Enhancing photosynthesis with sugar signalsM Paul
Crop Performance and Improvement, IACR Rothamsted, Harpenden, Hertfordshire, UK AL5 2JQ
Trends Plant Sci 6:197-200. 2001..Here, we highlight recent progress and support for the hypothesis that genetic modification of trehalose metabolism through its interaction with sugar-signalling pathways can enhance photosynthetic capacity...
- Trehalose 6-phosphate: a signal of sucrose statusMatthew J Paul
Centre for Crop Genetic Improvement, Rothamsted Research, Harpenden, Hertfordshire AL5 2JQ, UK
Biochem J 412:e1-2. 2008..Using this technology, the authors showed large changes in T6P content that reflect tissue sucrose status. Overall, this elegant work makes an important contribution towards our understanding of the function of T6P in plants...
- Trehalose 6-phosphateMatthew Paul
Crop Performance and Improvement, Rothamsted Research, Harpenden, Hertfordshire, AL5 2JQ, UK
Curr Opin Plant Biol 10:303-9. 2007..TPSs are also regulated post-translationally. Mechanistic details of how T6P signals are emerging, but still sparse. Nevertheless, even at this stage, targeting central regulators such as T6P offers promise in crop improvement...
- Upregulation of biosynthetic processes associated with growth by trehalose 6-phosphateMatthew J Paul
Plant Science, Rothamsted Research, Harpenden, Hertfordshire, UK
Plant Signal Behav 5:386-92. 2010..The overall pattern of changes in gene expression supports a role for T6P in coordinating carbon supply with biosynthetic process involved in growth and development...
- Carbon metabolite feedback regulation of leaf photosynthesis and developmentMatthew J Paul
Crop Performance and Improvement, Rothamsted Research, Harpenden, Herts AL5 2JQ, UK
J Exp Bot 54:539-47. 2003..This review summarizes the current sketchy, but growing, knowledge of the mechanisms through which carbon metabolite feedback mechanisms regulate leaf photosynthesis...
- Sink regulation of photosynthesisM J Paul
Biochemistry and Physiology Department, IACR Rothamsted, Harpenden, Herts AL5 2JQ, UK
J Exp Bot 52:1383-400. 2001....
- Low sink demand limits photosynthesis under P(i) deficiencyA J Pieters
Biochemistry and Physiology Department, IACR-Rothamsted, Harpenden, Hertfordshire AL5 2JQ, UK
J Exp Bot 52:1083-91. 2001..It is concluded that low sink strength imposes the primary limitation on photosynthesis in P(i)-deficient plants which restricts sucrose export and sucrose synthesis imposing an end-product synthesis limitation of photosynthesis...

- Production of high-starch, low-glucose potatoes through over-expression of the metabolic regulator SnRK1Rowan S McKibbin
Long Ashton Research Station, Bristol BS41 9AF, UK
Plant Biotechnol J 4:409-18. 2006..They emphasize the importance of SnRK1 in the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism and resource partitioning, and indicate a specific role for SnRK1 in the control of starch accumulation in potato tubers...
- Highly conserved protein kinases involved in the regulation of carbon and amino acid metabolismNigel G Halford
Crop Performance and Improvement, Rothamsted Research, Harpenden, Hertfordshire AL5 2JQ, UK
J Exp Bot 55:35-42. 2004..However, close examination of the signalling pathways in which they operate also reveals intriguing differences in activation and function...
