LITERATURE
nutrition
accumulation of high levels of ascorbate using GalUR gene overepression in tomato fruits. Tomato fruits are considered a major dietary source of vitamin C in many countries, because it is consumed regularly and in large quantities. Tomato also serves as a fruit model for other crops species with fleshy berry. Accordingly, it is very important to monitor and to increase the vitamin C content in tomato fruit, for meeting the consumer demand and health requirements for high nutrition, e.g. by overexpressing D-galacturonate reductase
