Apple fruit ripening is largely mediated by ethylene. Interference at the receptor level by an antagonist modifies both the transcriptional and metabolic patterns. Our correlation network analysis showed specific interactions between particular transcripts and fruit texture, aromatic VOCs and polyphenolic compounds. Gene de-repression and regulatory activations were linked to regulatory circuits that involved auxin, ethylene and transcription factors.
