A tomato lipase gene homologous to Arabidopsis DAD1 (lipase homologous to DAD1; LeLID1) was cloned and characterized. The corresponding transcript increased rapidly during germination of the seeds and reached a maximum level at four days after germination. Thereafter, it decreased rapidly. Little expression could be found in flowers or fruits. Immunoblot(More)
To modify the flavor properties of tomato fruits, cucumber fatty acid hydroperoxide lyase (HPL), which can act on 9-hydroperoxides of fatty acids to form volatile C9-aldehydes, was introduced to tomato plants. Through enzyme assay, high activity of the introduced HPL could be found in either the leaves or fruits of transgenic tomatoes; however, the(More)
