LITERATURE
5-chloro-3-methyl-4-nitro-1H-pyrazole induces Zds expression from early to midmaturation stages, overview
presence of 5-chloro-3-methyl-4-nitro-1H-pyrazole activates phytoene desaturase (Pds) and zeta-carotene desaturase Zds gene expression from early to midmaturation stages of fruit
the expression of zeta-carotene desaturase paralles plastid terminal oxidase (PTOX, quinol:oxygen oxidoreductase) and zeta-carotene desaturase. The three genes are expressed when carotinoid biosynthesis is enhanced during fruit ripening

the expression of zeta-carotene desaturase paralles plastid terminal oxidase (PTOX, quinol:oxygen oxidoreductase) and zeta-carotene desaturase. The three genes are expressed when carotinoid biosynthesis is enhanced during fruit ripening. Tomato ghost mutant with impaired plastid terminal oxidase accumulate phytoene in leaves and fruits
-
the zds gene expression is upregulated in response to light
