- ... L-Ascorbic acid (vitamin C, AsA), is an essential component for collagen biosynthesis and the major antioxidant in human, mainly obtained from the diet. Strawberry as fruit with higher AsA concentration processes a distinct AsA biosynthesis pathway from tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) which dominants in D-mannose/L-galactose pathway. Firstly, the activity of D-galacturonic acid reductase (GalUR; EC ...

- ... Ascorbic acid or vitamin C is a wide spectrum antioxidant and plays a crucial role in a many metal-containing enzymes essential for humans, which are unable to synthesize the vitamin C and must obtain it from dietary sources. Ascorbic acid is transported by sodium-coupled ascorbic acid transporters or SVCTs in humans. However, little information is available about the nucleobase–ascorbate transpor ...
