Abstract

The response of some plant genes to glucose analogues 3-O-methylglucose (3OMG) or 6-deoxyglucose (6DOG) has been cited as evidence for metabolism-independent glucose signalling. To analyse such signalling using a genetic approach, we sought to identify Arabidopsis glucose-responsive genes which also respond to 3OMG and 6DOG in seedlings. Microarray analysis of gene expression in glucose-treated seedlings and RT-PCR analysis of glucose-treated leaf sections identified more than 200 glucose-responsive genes, but none responded to 3OMG or 6DOG. These data together with other published data on individual genes fail to identify any Arabidopsis sugar-responsive genes which also respond to 3OMG or 6DOG.
