DNA methylation is an important epigenetic modification,playing critical roles during fruit ripening. Here we reviewed the changes and mechanism of DNA methylation during fruit ripening in different fruits. Based on previous studies,it was found that the total DNA methylation level in most fruits decreases during the ripening process while the overall DNA methylation increases in a few other fruits. In addition,specific genes,especially those related to ripening,undergo demethylation under the regulation of demethylase,which further affects fruit ripening. In general,the mechanism that causes DNA methylation alternations during fruit ripening is comprehensively regulated by methylase,demethylase and plant specific RdDM pathway. This work provides important theoretical reference for the epigenetic regulation mechanism of fruit ripening,and feasible suggestions are proposed for future work.
