Postharvest UV-C treatment of peach fruit: Changes in transcriptome profile focusing on genes involved in softening and senescence

See — Peach fruit is susceptible to softening and senescence during storage. In this work, we investigate the changes in genes related to the process of softening and senescence in peach fruit treated with 4 kJ/m2 UV-C irradiation based on transcriptome sequencing. A total of 3,416 unigenes with more than 2-fold difference in expression were identified in the UV-C irradiation vs. control. Of these, 1046 were up-regulated and 2370 were down-regulated. UV-C treatment up-regulated a series of genes related to antioxidant and defense response and down-regulated the expression of genes related to cell wall decomposition, membrane lipid peroxidation,…
