Do plant cells uptake AdoMet?

Dear Friends,

Although I learned that at least two others have the same interest, I so far
received no reply.

In yeast, S-adenosyl methionine (AdoMet) is actively uptaken and can grow
using AdoMet as the sole S source (Rouillon et al. JBC 274:28096-105, 1999).
However, no such transporter seems to be identified in plants.

Happy holidays,
