Comments "Figure 2a shows the partitioning of the 14C carbon after labeling with [U-14C6]glucose and [U-14C5]glutamine for 5 days (from 12 to 17 DAP): 20.0±3.8%, 11.1±0.8%, 5.3±1.2% and 13.1±0.8% of the 14C was incorporated into oil, protein, starch and cell walls, respectively, which represents a carbon conversion efficiency of 49.5%."
