Nitric oxide inhibits activities of PAL and PME enzymes and reduces chilling injury in ‘Santa Rosa’ Japanese plum (Prunus salicina Lindell)


Studies were carried out to observe the effect of sodium nitroprusside (SNP) treatment (source of nitric oxide) on chilling injury, electrolyte leakage, malondialdehyde (MDA) content, phenylalanine ammonia lyase (PAL) and pectin methyl esterase (PME) activities during low temperature storage of Japanese plums cv. ‘Santa Rosa’. All SNP treatments… (More)
