Genetic engineering of tomato fruit for sustained accumulation of polyamines during ripening to study their physiological role(s)

Genetic engineering of tomato fruit for sustained accumulation of polyamines during ripening to study their physiological role(s)

Acta Horticulturae (575(Vol. 1)): 157-161

Tomato fruits were engineered to accumulate polyamines, spermidine, and spermine, during ripening by genetic introduction of S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase (SAMdc) gene fused with the ripening-inducible promoter. The transgenic fruits were field-tested over several years and the incorporated SAMdc gene was stable.
