Lipoxygenase and hydroperoxide lyase activities in ripening strawberry fruits.

Abstract

The enzymes lipoxygenase and hydroperoxide lyase have been identified in strawberry (Fragariax ananassa Duch.) var. Camarosa. Their subcellular localization, substrate preference, and product specificity were determined in mature strawberry fruits. The activity of both enzymes was located mainly in the microsomal fraction. Linolenic acid was the preferred… (More)
