Polyacetylenes in fresh and stored carrots (Daucus carota): relations to root morphology and sugar content

Kjellenberg, Lars; Johansson, Eva; Gustavsson, Karl-Erik; Olsson, Marie


CONCLUSION: The results indicate similarities in the activity of the enzymes transforming sucrose to hexoses and the enzymes transforming falcarinol to falcarindiol-3-acetate and falcarindiol. The negative correlation between root size and polyacetylenes seems to be partly due to dilution but also to a higher synthetisation rate in smaller roots. The results indicate the existence of an equilibrium regulating the level of falcarinol. (C) 2011 Society of Chemical Industry
