Exposure to non-freezing temperatures below 10 °C causes an increase in the subsequent rate of ion leakage from chilling sensitive tissue (e.g. tomato fruit). The conditions of tissue preparation and conductivity measurements necessary to accurately calculate the rate of ion leakage from excised discs of tomato pericarp tissue were determined. Under the proper conditions, the rate of leakage expressed as a percent of the total conductivity per hour was linear for the period of 30–240 min… Expand

Influence of heat shocks on the kinetics of chilling-induced ion leakage from tomato pericarp discs
The kinetics of ion leakage from chilled tomato pericarp discs was altered by heat-shock treatments that reduced chillinginduced increases in ion leakage. Pericarp discs (5 mm × 12 mm diameter; 0.52Expand
Effect of heat shock on the chilling sensitivity of trichomes and petioles of African violet (Saintpaulia ionantha).
Chilling at 6 degrees C caused an immediate cessation of protoplasmic streaming in trichomes from African violets (Saintpaulia ionantha), and a slower aggregation of chloroplasts in the cells.Expand
Application of a diffusion model to measure ion leakage of resurrection plant leaves undergoing desiccation.
TLDR
It is suggested that the enhanced leakage in air-dried leaves should not be considered as damage but rather as a survival mechanism based on a reversible modification in the structure of cell wall, plasma membrane and alterations in vacuolar system of the cells. Expand
Effect of temperature and ripening stages on membrane integrity of fresh-cut tomatoes
The shelf-life of fresh-cut tomatoes mainly depends on loss of tissue integrity and firmness that occurs also in intact fruits after long-term cold storage due to chilling injury. Round-fruitExpand
CHILLING INJURY AND PHYSICO-CHEMICAL ATTRIBUTES OF MANGO FRUIT INFLUENCED BY LOW TEMPERATURE STORAGE
Mango fruit can not be stored for longer time at ambient temperature due to its highly perishable nature. Conversely, low temperature storage may also lead to chilling injury. Therefore, the storageExpand
Evaluation of Freezing Damage in some Pistachio Seedling Rootstocks
A greenhouse experiment was conducted to evaluate the freezing damage in some pistachio rootstocks by ion leakage and pH changes of leaked solution. A factorial experiment was carried out inExpand
Determining the physiochemical changes and time of chilling injury incidence during cold storage of pomegranate fruit.
Intermittent warming (IW) is a good postharvest technique to prevent or alleviate chilling injuries during cold storage. Performing the warming treatment at the period of time before chilling injuryExpand
Onion cells after high pressure and thermal processing: comparison of membrane integrity changes using different analytical methods and impact on tissue texture.
TLDR
Chemical, biochemical, and histological techniques were used to obtain information on cell membrane permeability and onion tissue integrity after high pressure and thermal processing and it was found that the texture of onions was influenced by the state of the membranes and was abruptly modified once membrane integrity was lost.

Enhanced chilling tolerance in heat-treated mangosteen.
Mangosteen is sensitive to low temperature and develops chilling injury (CI) when stored at temperature below 13oC. Postharvest heat treatment has been applied to alleviate CI in various fruits. InExpand

Prior temperature exposure affects subsequent chilling sensitivity
TLDR
The chilling sensitivity of small discs or segments of tissue excised from chilling-sensitive species was significantly altered by prior temperature exposure subsequent to holding the tissue at chilling temperatures as measured by a number of physiolog-ical processes sensitive to chilling. Expand

TLDR
The results are consistent with the view that chilling injury causes changes in the membrane and that cell leakage is an early symptom of this change in some species. Expand

Membrane effects in postharvest physiology
TLDR
It is too early to conclude positively that a truly universal mechanism for both senescence and postharvest stress-induced membrane damage exists, but the picture emerging from numerous studies devoted to this topic is of membrane lipids undergoing extensive chemical degradation. Expand
