Access from EThOS:
It has been shown that LeRablla antisense tomato plants exhibit a reduced softening phenotype compared to wild type fruits. Thus, the LeRabl 1 protein may be involved in trafficking of cell wall hydrolysing enzymes to the cell wall during ripening. It has since been shown that LeRablla is highly expressed in immature fruit and expression decreased as the fruit developed reaching barely detectable levels in ripening fruit. The possibility thus exists that the observed phenotype may be due to silencing of related gene(s).
