Modifications to the cell wall of developing and ripening tomato fruit are mediated by cell wall-degrading enzymes, including a beta-d-xylosidase or alpha-l-arabinofuranosidase, which participate in the breakdown of xylans and/or arabinoxylans. The activity of both enzymes was highest during early fruit growth, before decreasing during later development and(More)
Using an F1 population from a cross between Japanese pear (Pyrus pyrifolia Nakai) cultivars 'Akiakari' and 'Taihaku', we performed quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis of seven fruit traits (harvest time, fruit skin color, flesh firmness, fruit weight, acid content, total soluble solids content, and preharvest fruit drop). The constructed simple sequence(More)
Native Trichoderma spp. were isolated from agricultural fields in several regions of Ecuador. These isolates were characterized via morphological observation as well as molecular phylogenetic analysis based on DNA sequences of the rDNA internal transcribed spacer region, elongation factor-1α gene and RNA polymerase subunit II gene. Fifteen native(More)
