- ... Apples (Malusdomestica L. cv Golden Delicious) were picked 7 days before (harvest 1), or after (harvest 2) the commercial harvest time. Changes in H2O2 levels and in the activity of the H2O2-generating enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) and H2O2-scavenging enzymes catalase (CAT) and unspecific peroxidase (POX) were estimated immediately after harvest and during the first 24 h following wounding and ...
