'Soggy breakdown' (SB) is an internal flesh disorder of 'Honeycrisp' apple (Malus × domestica Borkh.) fruit that occurs during low temperature storage. The disorder is a chilling injury (CI) in which visible symptoms typically appear after several weeks of storage, but information about the underlying metabolism associated with its induction and development is lacking. The metabolic profile of flesh tissue from wholly healthy fruit and brown and healthy tissues from fruit with SB was…

Metabolic changes associated with chilling injury tolerance in tomato fruit with hot water pretreatment.
The better metabolic performance of HWT fruit under cold storage was associated with a higher accumulation of several metabolites (e.g., antioxidants and osmolytes) in ripening fruit, which will increase the economic value and decrease postharvest losses.
Controlled Atmosphere Storage, Temperature Conditioning, and Antioxidant Treatment Alter Postharvest 'Honeycrisp' Metabolism
The physiology and metabolism characterizing postharvest chilling and CO2 injury in apple has important implications for postharvest management of soft scald and soggy breakdown. This research
Gene expression and metabolism preceding soft scald, a chilling injury of ‘Honeycrisp’ apple fruit
The sequential transcriptomic and metabolomic changes preceding soft scald symptom development were differential depending on susceptibility of fruit to the disorder and could be attributed to key stress related and mediating pathways.
Storage Temperature and 1-Methylcyclopropene Treatment Affect Storage Disorders and Physiological Attributes of ‘Royal Gala’ Apples
‘Royal Gala’ apples [Malus domestica (Borkh.) Mansf.]can develop postharvest disorders such as flesh browning, senescent breakdown, peeling, cracking, or shriveling during and after cold storage. The
Acetaldehyde and Ethanol Metabolism during Conditioning and Air Storage of ‘Honeycrisp’ Apples
‘Honeycrisp’ apples are susceptible to the physiological disorder soft scald, especially when stored at temperatures close to 0 °C. The disorder can be reduced by a conditioning treatment of 10 °C
Primary Metabolism in Fresh Fruits During Storage
Temperature, MA/CA, and 1-MCP alter fruit physiology and biochemistry, resulting in compositional changes in carbon- and nitrogen-related metabolisms and compounds, and successful application of these storage technologies to fruits must consider their effects on the metabolism of carbohydrates, organic acids, amino acids and lipids.


Cell wall, cell membrane, and volatile metabolism are altered by antioxidant treatment, temperature shifts, and peel necrosis during apple fruit storage.
Overall, the application of metabolomics techniques lends new insight into physiological processes leading to cell death and ripening processes that affect fruit flavor, appearance, and overall quality.
'Scarlett Spur Red Delicious' apple volatile production accompanying physiological disorder development during low pO2 controlled atmosphere storage.
Incidence of low oxygen disorders after 9 months was highest in fruit held at the lowest pO2, and the sesquiterpene α-farnesene was not detected throughout the storage period.
Ripening, storage temperature, ethylene action, and oxidative stress alter apple peel phytosterol metabolism.
Enzymatic Browning, Polyphenol Oxidase Activity, and Polyphenols in Four Apple Cultivars: Dynamics during Fruit Development
The enzymatic browning showed high correlation to polyphenol content in all cultivars and high correlation was observed between browning and PPO activity in 'Aori27' and 'Elstar', indicating the magnitude of the correlation betweenbrowning and polyphenols and P PO activity is genotype-specific.
Metabolic and gene expression analysis of apple (Malus × domestica) carotenogenesis
The study identified potential rate-limiting steps in carotenogenesis, which suggested that the expression of ZISO, CRTISO, and LCY-ε, in particular, were significant in predicting finalCarotenoid accumulation in mature apple fruit.
Oxidative Stress and Superficial Scald of Apple Fruit
Superfi cial scald of apples and pears, which manifests as brown or black patches on the fruit skin, results from necrosis of the hypodermal cortical tissue (Bain and Mercer, 1963) and is thought to
Metabolomic change precedes apple superficial scald symptoms.
Results demonstrate that extensive metabolomic changes associated with scald precede actual symptom development in Granny Smith apple superficial scald development following 1-MCP or DPA treatment.
Metabolic changes in 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP)-treated ‘Empire’ apple fruit during storage
Abstract‘Empire’ apple fruit are more susceptible to flesh browning at 3.3°C if treated with 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP), an inhibitor of ethylene perception. To better understand the metabolic
