The effect of UV-B shielding on ethylene production in ripening tomato fruits and the contribution of ethylene and UV-B radiation on carotenoid accumulation and profile during ripening were assessed to get more insight about the interplay between these two regulatory factors. To this aim, rin and nor tomato mutants, unable to produce ripening ethylene, and… CONTINUE READING
