Abstract During extraction of plant tissues, endogenous phenolics are rapidly oxidized to form quinones, condensed tannins and brown pigments. The oxidation is catalysed by phenoloxidases but only occurs to any appreciable extent when the tissue is homogenized because the phenolics are spatially separated from the phenoloxidases in intact tissue. The products of the phenoloxidase reaction powerfully inhibit plant enzymes and subcellular organelles. Loss of activity of enzymes and subcellular… CONTINUE READING
