    • Abstract


      Extracts fromColletotrichum-infected chilli fruits contain the enzyme endo-PGTE (Polygalacturonatetrans-eliminase) which appears to increase the permeability of chilli and potato cells. This effect is greater in red ripened fruits which are susceptible to rotting than in the green chilli fruits.
