Cloning and expression analysis of PpSUT2 encoding a sucrose transporter in pear

J. Tang, Lin, J., Zhang, B. L., Wang, Z. H., Li, X. G., and Chang, Y. H., Cloning and expression analysis of PpSUT2 encoding a sucrose transporter in pear, vol. 13, pp. 8932-8945, 2014.

A 1794-bp cDNA fragment was amplified from mRNA isolated from pear (Pyrus pyrifolia NaKai. Cuiguan) leaves by using primers based on the sequences generated during the analysis of the pear transcriptome. The 597-amino acid sequence encoded by the cDNA was compared with the sequences in GenBank, and it was found to be similar to that of members of the sucrose-proton co-transporter family. The hydrophobic protein, which was predicted to have 11 transmembrane domains, was designated as PpSUT2.
