Abstract
Chlorophyll degradation is the main reason for postharvest yellowing of broccoli. To uncover the role of jasmonic acid (JA) on the degradation of chlorophyll, broccoli flowers were treated with exogenous methyl jasmonate (MeJA) and diethyldithiocarbamic acid (DIECA). We found a surge of endogenous JA content with the yellowing process, and a significant correlation between JA and chlorophyll content. MeJA treatments led to increased endogenous...
