I don't know whether they have ever formally published the details of their
work. However, I can cite a couple of recent articles on the subject:
Gray et al. (1992) Molecular biology of fruit ripening and its manipulation
with antisense genes. Plant. Mol. Biol. 19:69-87. (review article)
Tieman et al. (1992) An antisense pectin methylesterase gene alters pectin
chemistry and soluble solids in tomato fruit. Plant Cell 4:667-679.
Neither of these papers is from Calgene. As one might expect many groups
appear to be pursuing similar strategies.
