Microstructure observations of the fruit cell walls after 1-MCP treatment by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) (a) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) (b, c). Fruit pulp samples from the control fruit of 0 days and 8 days after treatment, and fruit with 400 nL·L− 1 1-MCP treatment of 16 days after treatment are presented. a, Fruit cell wall microstructure observed by SEM. The scale bar is 100 μm. b, c, Fruit cell wall ultrastructure observed by TEM. The scale bar is 2 μm. CW, cell wall; PM, plasma membrane; ML, intercellular layer; SG, starch granules; MF, microfiber; M, mitochondrion; CH, chloroplast
