Glucose Inhibits ACC Oxidase Activity and Ethylene Biosynthesis in Ripening Tomato Fruit

Experiments were carried out to evaluate the effect of glucose on ripening and ethylene biosynthesis in tomato fruit (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.). Fruit at the light-red stage were vacuum infiltrated with glucose solutions post-harvest and changes in 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid (ACC) synthase, ACC, ACC oxidase, and ethylene production monitored over time. ACC oxidase activity was also measured in pericarp discs from the same fruits that were treated either with glucose, fructose… CONTINUE READING
