Syllabus -

Introduction - the importance of transport processes and compound distribution in  growth and development of plants, major compounds transported for a long distance

Mechanisms of transport processes - diffusion, facilitated diffusion, active transport, bulk flow

Characterisation of structures involved in transport processes- membranes, plasmodesmata, phloem, xylem.

Long distance transport - xylem,  water and mineral nutrients transport, capilarity, transpiration, 

Long distance transport of assimilates, phloem loading, phloem unloading

Transport of amino acids, phytohormones, signalling compounds  and xenobiotics.

Short distance transport - chloroplast - cytosol, cytosol-vacuole, cell - cell

Sink - source interaction

Regulation of inter- and intracellular transport,  control of C source allocation during day/night rhythm 

Saccharide signalling: hexokinase dependent and independent hexose signalling, SnRK signalling of C avalilability shortage, trehalose-6-P signalling

 C and N metabolism interactions
