Experiments to investigate the effect of the CRISPR mutations on processing quality indicated that genes modifying pectin metabolism and especially polyuronide chain length, such as PG2a and PL had a greater impact on paste viscosity than those that acting on pectin side chains or hemicelluloses. Immunocytochemistry indicated that PL was necessary for pectin solubilisation, perhaps […]
