inhibiting loss of quality in numerous fruits and vegetables ( Watkins, 2006 ). A treatment of 1-MCP reduces the perception of ethylene by competitively binding to the ethylene receptors in the tissue ( Sisler et al., 1996 ; Sisler and Serek, 1997

Ethylene is an endogenously synthesized plant hormone that influences growth and development at nanomolar (nmol⋅mol −1 ; ppb) concentrations ( Abeles et al. 1992 ). Atmospheric ethylene concentrations in field conditions seldom exceed 5 nmol

. 2019 ; Petri et al. 2007 ; Phan-Thien et al. 2004 ). The effect of AVG on apple fruit is generally assumed to act via inhibition of ACC synthase, which catalyzes the conversion of methionine to ACC, the precursor to ethylene in the ethylene

cropping ( Greene, 2002 ). Ethylene induces (stimulates) organ abscission in numerous plants including apple ( Addicott, 1982 ; Arteca, 1995 ; Reid, 1985 ). There is evidence that apple fruitlet abscission may be related to increased ethylene evolution

al., 2012 ; Lichter, 2016 ). Ethylene plays an important role in preharvest ripening in both climacteric and nonclimacteric fruit and is involved either directly or indirectly in the regulation of grape development and organ senescence ( Chervin et

Abstract

The rate of ethylene production is greater in banana (Musa spp.) flowers having an abscising perianth (“ap”) than in those with a persistent perianth (“pp”). Treatments with ethephon did not change the type of the flowers but speeded up their senescence.

; Faragher, 1983 ; Marais et al., 2001 ). However, because the experimental conditions differed among the respective reports, comparing their results is difficult. Ethylene is a key plant hormone involved in fruit ripening in apples ( Saure, 1990 ). Whale

Abstract

Potted poinsettia plants (Euphorbia pulcherrima Klotzsch ex. Willd., cv Annette Hegg Supreme) wrapped in polyethylene or paper sleeves for 24 hours developed petiolar curvatures of leaves, giving plants a contorted appearance. Excised petioles from sleeved plants evolved much greater quantities of ethylene than did similar excised petioles of unsleeved plants. Use of paper sleeves produced effects identical to those produced in plants which were placed in polyethylene sleeves. Ethylene evolution as a result of sleeving was most prominent in bracts, intermediate in younger leaves, and least prominent in older leaves.

Abstract

Detached fruits of the rin mutant in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) synthesized little or no lycopene in the presence of 10, 100, or 1000 ppm ethylene in air. However, lycopene synthesis was initiated in fruits kept in 60% or 100% O2 (elevated tensions of oxygen) in the presence of 10 ppm ethylene.
