Metabolic engineering of raffinose-family oligosaccharides in the phloem reveals alterations in carbon partitioning and enhances resistance to green peach aphid

Description: This article discusses the use of metabolic engineering to generate raffinose-family oligosaccharides (RFOs) at the inception of the translocation stream of Arabidopsis thaliana, which loads from the apoplasm and transports predominantly sucrose, and the fate of the sugars through the plant determined.
