Sugarcane is a perishable commodity and must be processed into sugar quickly after it is harvested. Post harvest sucrose losses have been reported from many cane producing countries and linked withExpand
Impact of excess zinc on growth parameters, cell division, nutrient accumulation, photosynthetic pigments and oxidative stress of sugarcane (Saccharum spp.)
The present study employed a sand culture experiment with three levels of zinc viz., 0.065 (control), 65.0 and 130 mg l−1 Zn (excess) as zinc sulfate, respectively, in sugarcane (Saccharum spp.),Expand
Functional analysis of sucrose phosphate synthase (SPS) and sucrose synthase (SS) in sugarcane (Saccharum) cultivars.
Sucrose phosphate synthase (SPS; EC and sucrose synthase (SS; EC are key enzymes in the synthesis and breakdown of sucrose in sugarcane. The activities of internodal SPS and SS,Expand
