|Textural analyses of fresh intact fruits from wild-type (WT) and transgenic lines|
|Sample||Penetration massa(g) ±SE||Penetration distancea(mm)±SE||Compression massb(kg)±SE|
Texture of fresh intact fruits for wild-type (WT-1) and three independent transgenic overexpressing (TFM7-OE4, 5 and 6) and cosuppressing (TFM7-CS1, 2 and 3) lines was analyzed using TA-XT Plus (Stable Microsystems).
a indicated that penetration analysis of fresh fruits with a 2mm Cylinder Probe (P2/N); Three measurements for each fruit (6 fruit per individual plant) were taken at each stage. Value was showed as mean ±SE (n=18).
b indicated that compression analysis with a 100 mm compression platen (P/100). Value was showed as mean ±SE (n=15).
The significance was calculated by the student’s t test. Asterisks indicated statistical differences to WT (P <0.005** or P <0.05*).
