Fruit weight is controlled by Cell Size Regulator encoding a novel protein that is expressed in maturing tomato fruits

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 5560543
PMID: 28817560
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1006930

[…] e recorded as each fruit turned to orange (30%-60% surface color change to orange) and red (>90% surface color change to red). Fruit quality was measured as the total soluble solid content (degree of Brix). A quarter of each 14 representative ripe fruits were blended together per plant. The homogenized juice was filtered with Kimwipes and Brix was measured by a pocket refractometer (ATAGO CO., LTD […]


Mpp10 represents a platform for the interaction of multiple factors within the 90S pre ribosome

PLoS One
PMCID: 5558966
PMID: 28813493

[…] andard procedures as implemented in CHAINSAW, SCULPTOR [] and MODELLER [] and combined the resulting models with manual trimming. In addition we took into account the pseudo-symmetrical nature of the brix-fold and tried searching with two separate ‘domains’. Despite extensive trials no clear solution was found. We concluded that the low sequence identity between ctImp4 and anRpf2 and scRpf2 (both […]


The common transcriptional subnetworks of the grape berry skin in the late stages of ripening

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 5450095

[…] gregating together and away from one another. °Brix levels segregated along the 2nd principal component explaining 21.4% of the variance, in some cases distinctly from one another (e.g. Merlot at 20 °Brix, Semillon and Chardonnay both at 26 °Brix). The cultivars separated in a similar pattern as in a previous study [], with Pinot Noir again segregating between red and white cultivars.Fig. 1 While […]


Integrating Physiology and Architecture in Models of Fruit Expansion

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5116533
PMID: 27917187
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2016.01739

[…] ces and each slice was cut radially into 8 pieces of equivalent size. Each of these 8 pieces was divided in 2 parts, internal (stone side) and external (skin side). Then total soluble solid contents (Brix index) were measured in the 64 small flesh volumes with a refractometer (ATAGO PR32 Alpha). In peach, this index strongly correlates with the soluble sugar content of the flesh fresh matter, as s […]


The photomorphogenic factors UV B RECEPTOR 1, ELONGATED HYPOCOTYL 5, and HY5 HOMOLOGUE are part of the UV B signalling pathway in grapevine and mediate flavonol accumulation in response to the environment

J Exp Bot

[…] re frozen in liquid nitrogen and then stored at –80 ºC until required for RNA extraction. Veraison was determined as the time at which clusters were 30–50% coloured and sugar concentration reached 5º Brix. HPLC quantification of flavonols was conducted as described by . […]


The draft genome of MD 2 pineapple using hybrid error correction of long reads

PMCID: 5066169
PMID: 27374615
DOI: 10.1093/dnares/dsw026

[…] rcial pineapple field located at Babagon, Sabah. The fruit was a local variety but a variant of the Smooth Cayenne. Nevertheless, its average fruit size is smaller than Smooth Cayenne but with higher Brix value (ranges from 8 to 20°) and the pH value of the fruit ranges from 3.7 to 3.2. The green mature fruit and yellow mature fruit were harvested randomly at 12 and 16 weeks after flowering, respe […]
