Methionine metabolism in apple tissue

  • D. P. Murr
Specialia Pimelea Simplex


A metabolic intermediate isolated from apple tissue fed either methionine or 5′-methylthioadenosine has been tentatively identified as a methionine-pyridoxal Schiff base. The formation of this compound is discussed in relation to ethylene biosynthesis.
