Potato sucrose synthetase: purification, properties, and changes in activity associated with maturation.


Sucrose synthetase activity is high in young potato tubers but decreases markedly during maturation. The activity decreases rapidly after the tubers are harvested and remains low regardless of storage temperature. This enzyme was purified 34-fold from freshly harvested immature potatoes. It catalyzes both cleavage and synthesis of sucrose but the 2… (More)
