- ... Ultraviolet-C (UV-C) radiation is used as a postharvest treatment to prolong the shelf life of fruit. However, this stressful process may also affect ethylene production and, consequently, the expression of genes encoding ethylene response factors (ERFs). To test this hypothesis, MicroTom tomatoes harvested at the breaker stage were subjected to: 1 – application of 3.7kJm−2 UV-C radiation, 2 – app ...
