Effect of processing conditions on phospholipase D activity of corn kernel subcellular fractions.


The influence of physicochemical conditions on the phospholipase D (PLD) activity of subcellular preparations of sweet corn (Zea mays L. cv. Peaches and Cream) kernels has been studied. The microsomal, mitochondrial, and cytosolic preparations of corn kernels possessed PLD activity albeit at varying proportions. The microsomal and cytosolic PLD activities… (More)
