Study IDs link between sugar signaling and regulation of oil production in plants

Even plants have to live on an energy budget. While they’re known for converting solar energy into chemical energy in the form of sugars, plants have sophisticated biochemical mechanisms for regulating how they spend that energy. Making oils costs a lot. By exploring the details of this delicate energy balance, a group of scientists has identified a previously unknown link between a protein that maintains plant sugar balance and one that turns on oil production.
