Abstract

Summary In plants, sugars act as signalling molecules that control many aspects of metabolism and development. Arabidopsis plants homozygous for the recessive sucrose uncoupled‐6 (sun6) mutation show a reduced sensitivity to sugars for processes such as photosynthesis, gene expression and germination. The sun6 mutant is insensitive to sugars that are substrates for hexokinase, suggesting that SUN6 might play a role in hexokinase‐dependent sugar responses. The SUN6 gene was cloned by transposon tagging and analysis showed it to be identical to the previously described ABSCISIC ACID INSENSITIVE‐4 (ABI4) gene. Our analysis suggests the involvement of abscisic acid and components of the abscisic acid signal transduction cascade in a hexokinase‐dependent sugar response pathway. During the plant life cycle, SUN6/ABI4 may be involved in controlling metabolite availability in an abscisic acid‐ and sugar‐dependent way.
