Abstract

Both cuticle and membrane lipids play essential roles in quality maintenance and disease resistance in fresh fruits. Many reports have indicated the modification of alternative branch pathways in epicuticular wax mutants; however, the specific alterations concerning lipids have not been clarified...

Abstract

Bananas are well known as good sources of starch. Resistant starch (RS) is a functional component having health care function. 'Cavendish' and plantain bananas were used to investigate the influences of hydrolases and granule structure on starch degradation. The levels of RS, non-resistant starch...

Abstract

Olive (Olea europaea.L) is an economically important oleaginous crop and its fruit cold-pressed oil is used for edible oil all over the world. The basic region-leucine zipper (bZIP) family is one of the largest transcription factors families among eukaryotic organisms; its members play vital roles...

Abstract

FvMYB10 protein has been proved to be a transcriptional switch for anthocyanin biosynthesis in strawberry. A single nucleotide mutation in R2 domain of FvMYB10, named as FvmMYB10, is found to be responsible for the white color in strawberry variety 'Yellow Wonder'. However, the mechanism of...

Abstract

The fruit of the pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) is an important nutraceutical food rich in polyphenolic compounds, including hydrolysable tannins, anthocyanins and flavonols. Their composition varies according to cultivar, tissue and fruit development stage and is probably regulated by a...

Abstract

Carotenoids are the main pigments in watermelon (Citrullus lanatus L.) fruit and contribute to its aesthetic and nutritional value. Phytoene synthase (PSY) is reported to be the first rate-limiting enzyme in carotenogenesis and controls the carotenoid flux. This study aimed to identify PSY genes...

Abstract

Banana (Musa acuminata, AAA group) is a representative climacteric fruit with essential nutrients and pleasant flavors. Control of its ripening determines both the fruit quality and the shelf life. NAC (NAM, ATAF, CUC2) proteins, as one of the largest superfamilies of transcription factors, play...

Abstract

The process of domestication requires the rapid transformation of the wild morphology into the cultivated forms that humans select for. This process often takes place through changes in the regulation of genes, yet, there is no definite pattern on the role of cis- and trans-acting regulatory...

Abstract

Anthocyanin as secondary metabolites exits wildly in the plant kingdom, and its accumulation is regulated by transcription factors. However, little is known about role of CaMYB in fruit color of pepper. In this study, a purple-fruited pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) was selected and observed at 8...

Abstract

Anthocyanin pigmentation is an important consumption trait of apple (Malus domestica Borkh.). In this study, we focused on the identification of NAC (NAM, ATAF1/2 and CUC2) proteins involved in the regulation of anthocyanin accumulation in apple flesh. A group of MdNACs was selected for comparison...
