Overexpression of SlCOBRA-like prolongs fruit shelf life. (A) RR fruits from TFM7-OE4 (left group) and WT (right group) plants after storage at room temperature (23~25°C in 55~60% relative humidity) for 40 days. (B) and (C) The opposite side and longitudinal section of TFM7-OE4 fruits after 40 days of storage, respectively. (D) Relative fresh weight loss in fruits. The weight loss per fruit was calculated every five days until they lost their texture and structural integrity. Values represent means ±SE (n=6).
