  journal={Botanical Gazette},
  pages={64 - 72}
The total number of vesicles within the fruits of several species of the Aurantioideae (Rutaceae) was determined. Two distinct vesicle shape types are recognized: superior and inferior. There was a significant correlation with the number of juice vesicles per fruit and the number of segments found within the fruit. Citrus species (e.g., grapefruit and pummelo) containing fruit composed of many segments (e.g., 10-14 and 20, respectively) correspondingly contained more vesicles per segment than… 
Sequential Changes of Pericarp Ultrastructure in Citrus reticulata Hesperidium
Ultrastructural changes of the pericarp in Citrus reticulata has been investigated during hesperidium abscission and the structural changes underlying developmental, particularly to senescence, processes in various Hesperidium will be reported in the separate paper.
Extraction of DNA from orange juice, and detection of bacterium Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus by real-time PCR.
This work provided a protocol to extract DNA from whole orange juice and detect CLas in HLB-affected fruit by qPCR, and application of an elution column successfully removed the unidentified inhibitor to DNA amplification.

Musical tuning enhanced in-vitro micro/nano palpation for multi-scale biological entities
This paper presents a musical tuning enhanced in-vitro micro/nano palpation system that will help to intuitively and interactively identify the mechanical signature or bio-marker of multi-scale biological entities, including cells, embryos, tissues, and organs.
Durable and cost-effective 3-D microforce sensor for musical tuning enhanced micro palpation of biological entities
This paper presents our development of highly sensitive and durable 3-D microforce sensors for our musical tuning enhanced in-vitro micro palpation system that will help to intuitively and


The principal objects of the present investigation were a study of water absorption in the fruit, the concentrations of solutes which affect swelling, and the rate of swelling.
Physiological gradients in citrus fruits
Evidence is presented of the existence of physical and chemical differences and gradients in citrus and other fruits, and attempts to explain these differences by a consideration of the structure and function of the parts concerned.
Morphological, anatomical, and physiological changes in the developing fruit of the Valencia orange, Citrus sinensis (L) Osbeck
Measurements of fruit radius and peel and pulp width, as well as determinations of fresh weight, dry weight, moisture content total and protein nitrogen content, and respiration rate were made
Changes in the Organic-Acid Content of Valencia Oranges During Development
The maximum amount of free acid in Valencia orange fruits was found to develop early in the season and to change very little from that time on, while the changes in pH of the juice were definitely related to changes in percentages of the total-acid radical in the free form.
Effects of rootstock and environment on the composition of oranges and grapefruit

Anatomical Aspects of Juice Sacs of Satsuma Mandarin in Relation to Translocation
Anatomical features of developing juice sac in citrus fruits, satsuma mandarin (Citrus unshiu Marc.), were studied by light and transmission electron microscopy, to seek an explanation for the
A Numerical Taxonomic Study of Affinity Relationships in Cultivated Citrus and Its Close Relatives
The affinity relationships of 43 biotypes of cultivated Citrus-close relatives, interspecific and intergeneric hybrids, and clones of unknown origin-were studied to develop information for use in citrus breeding experiments to support the proposed systematic relationships.
Chemical Compositions and Internal Anatomy of the Gelated and Granulated Juice Sacs of Sanbokan (Citrus sulcata hort. ex Takahashi) Fruit
The epidermis of the granulated juice sacs were extremely thicker than that of the healthy sacs in the stem-end region of segment, but, in the middle region of region, it was slightly thicker than those of thehealthy sacs.
