Lignification of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) pericarp tissue during blossom-end rot development

Nicholas Reitz
Blossom-end rot is a physiological disorder causing significant losses in the produce industry each year. Accumulation of reactive oxygen species has been established as a key characteristic of blossom-end rot development. An increase in peroxidase activity and lignin precursor content are also associated with blossom-end rot symptoms, leading to the hypothesis that lignification may be occurring during blossom-end rot development. To investigate the potential involvement of lignification, hydrogen peroxide content, catalase activity, and peroxidase activity...
