This work investigates the possible causes of cold-induced sweetening in potato by examining the impact of low temperature on carbohydrate metabolism in mature tubers. Metabolism in tuber discs was monitored by determining the redistribution of radiolabel following incubation in [U-(14)C]glucose. Estimates of flux based on the specific activity of hexose phosphates established that while incubation at 4 degrees C resulted in an immediate restriction in pathways of carbohydrate oxidation… CONTINUE READING
