EIN4 and ERS2 Are Members of the Putative Ethylene Receptor Gene Family in Arabidopsis
The Arabidopsis ethylene receptor gene ETR1 and two related genes, ERS1 and ETR2, were identified previously. These three genes encode proteins homologous to the two-component regulators that areExpand

ETR2 is an ETR1-like gene involved in ethylene signaling in Arabidopsis.
The plant hormone ethylene regulates a variety of processes of growth and development. To identify components in the ethylene signal transduction pathway, we screened for ethylene-insensitive mutantsExpand
