Glycolysis Is Dynamic and Relates Closely to Respiration Rate in Stored Sugarbeet Roots

Although respiration is the principal cause of the loss of sucrose in postharvest sugarbeet (Beta vulgaris L.), the internal mechanisms that control root respiration rate are unknown. Available evidence, however, indicates that respiration rate is likely to be controlled by the availability of respiratory substrates, and glycolysis has a central role in… (More)
