  • The activities of phosphorylase (EC 2.4.1.1), amylase (EC 3.2.1.2) and invertase (EC 3.2.1.26) were monitored in the pulp and peel of post-harvest plantain (Musa paradisiaca L) stored at 26 °C and at 14° respectively. There was a significant increase (P < 0.01) in the activities of the three enzymes in both the pulp and peel of plantain fingers stored at 26 °C as ripening progressed as assessed by the unpaired t-test. The increase in amylase activity was more dramatic, thus suggesting a greater… CONTINUE READING
