Abstract

The soursop fruit and the entire soursop plant is assocd. with a lot of health benefits which includes the killing of cancer cells in cancer patients. The treatment of cancer with soursop has been reported to be accompanied with the risk of Parkinson's disease while soursop juice is considered safe for consumption. The fruit had been assocd. with preharvest and postharvest deterioration caused by microorganisms and this reduces the total prodn. of soursop fruit. The deterioration process is being accompanied with the prodn. of cell wall degrading enzymes which has the advantage of being used for industrial purposes. One of the important uses of these enzymes is in the clarification of fruit juices. This review proposes the genetic modification of the genes coding for important microbial enzymes for the clarification of soursop juice for improved yield, taste, and color. [on SciFinder(R)]
