Pyrus communis Raw sequence reads of cold conditioned European pear fruit
Identifiers: SRA: SRP090677
Low temperature (LT) treatments enhance ethylene production and ripening rate in the European pear (Pyrus communis L.). However, the underlying molecular mechanisms are not well understood. This study aims to identify genes responsible for ripening enhancement by LT. To this end, the transcriptome of ‘Bartlett’ pears treated with LT (0 °C or 10 °C for up to 14 d), which results in faster ripening, and control pears without conditioning treatment was analyzed.
