Cloning and some properties of Japanese pear (Pyrus pyrifolia) polyphenol oxidase, and changes in browning potential during fruit maturation

A PCR-amplified genomic DNA fragment encoding Japanese pear (P. pyrifolia) polyphenol oxidase (PPO) was cloned and sequenced. The DNA appears to encode a 66 kDa precursor protein consisting of a 56 kDa mature protein and a 9.5 kDa N-terminal transit peptide. The amino acid sequence showed high homology with apple PPO. The PPO mainly existed as a soluble fraction in cells and was limitedly proteolysed, while the mature form (56 kDa) was detected in plastids.
