In 1991, I reported that petunia CHS-A::GUS fusion gene is induced by sugar in transgenic petunia and in transgenic Arabidopsis.
Expression level was corelated to level of sugars incorporated to plants.
Tsukaya et al. 1991, Plant Physiol. 97: 1414-1421.
Many genes of plants were reported to be influenced the expression level. Other examples I know are as follows:
