Encodes a sucrose symporter.
Single mutant: suc9
single mutant is late flowering under SD conditions only. [Sivitz et al., 2007] Function:
High-affinity sucrose transporter. Responsible for the transport of sucrose into the cell, with the concomitant uptake of protons (symport system). Can also transport a wide range of glucosides, such as helicin, salicin, arbutin, maltose, fraxin, esculin, uranose, alpha-methylglucoside, alpha-phenylglucoside and beta-phenylglucoside. Plays a role in flowering time transition delay. [Data from UniProt]
