Wound-induced respiration and pyrophosphate:fructose-6-phosphate phosphotransferase in potato tubers.

A seven fold increase in the rate of respiratory O2 uptake was observed 24 h after slicing of potato tuber disks. The maximum activity of pyrophosphate:fructose-6-phosphate phosphotransferase (PFP) was 5-7 times greater than that of ATP-dependent phosphofructokinase (PFK) in fresh or aged potato slices. Thus, PFP may participate in glycolysis which supplies… CONTINUE READING
