How does glucose get from chloroplast to cytoplasm?

  1. Feb 22, 2004 #1
    Does the glucose synthesised inside the chloroplast diffuse into the cytplasm to be used by whatever part of the cell needs it, or is there some sort of active transport going on?

    Glucose is too big of a molecule for simple diffusion. It will have to have a carrier protein or active transport.
