Internodal invertases and stalk maturity in sugarcane



Internodal invertases and stalk maturity in sugarcane



Journal of Agricultural Science 116(2): 239-244



Acid and neutral invertase activities in the stem of an early (CoJ 64) and a late cultivar (Col 148) of sugarcane were estimated by incubating stem slices in buffered sucrose solution and measuring the production of reducing sugars. High enzyme activity occurred in young tissue but the activity of both enzymes was considerably lower in the mature internodes. Acid and neutral invertase activity was highest in the midinternode position, corresponding to the region of cell expansion.
