Cell wall glycosidase activities and protein content variations during fruit development and ripening in three texture contrasted tomato cultivars.


Excessive softening is the main factor limiting fruit shelf life and storage. It is generally acceptable now that softening of fruit which occurs during the ripening is due to synergistic actions of several enzymes on cell wall polysaccharides. As a subject for this study, we have assayed some glycosidase activities using three tomato species (Lycopersicon… (More)
