Mitochondrial protein expression in tomato fruit during on-vine ripening and cold storage

Holtzapffel, R; Finnegan, P; Miller, A Harvey; Badger, Murray; Day, David Alexander


We have investigated the activity and abundance of a number of respiratory chain components in ripening and cold-treated tomato fruits (Lycopersicon esculentum L. Mill cvv. Moneymaker and Sweetie). Expression of the alternative oxidase (AOX) protein increased dramatically in both situations. Levels of the plant uncoupling protein (UCP) initially fell, but increased substantially in the later stages of ripening. In contrast, ATP synthase subunits and the COXII subunit of cytochrome oxidase...[Show more]
