Control of ethylene biosynthesis and softening in ‘Cox’s Orange Pippin’ apples during low-ethylene, low-oxygen storage


The response of apples (Malus domestica Borkh.) cv. Cox’s Orange Pippin (‘Cox’) to low ethylene, controlled atmosphere (CA) storage was examined in two seasons. The content of 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid (ACC) and the activity of ACC oxidase (measured as the capacity for formation of ethylene from exogenous ACC) in cortical tissue of apple fruits… (More)
