Previous studies of grapes and tomatoes have shown that the abundance of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (PEPCK) increases in their flesh at the start of ripening, and that this coincides with a decrease in its citrate and/or malate content. Thus, PEPCK might function in the catabolism of organic acid anions during the ripening of these fruits. In the(More)
The growth characteristics of some plums and their component parts have been previously studied, as have some aspects of their developmental anatomy and composition. However, little is known about either their metabolism or about the interactions between the metabolism of their component parts. In this study we investigated these aspects in the Japanese(More)
