Role of Ethylene in Fruit Ripening.
There have arisen two schools of thought concerning the role of ethylene in fruit maturation: the classic view of Kidd and West (26) and Hansen (22) that ethylene is a ripening hormone, and a recentExpand

Molecular requirements for the biological activity of ethylene.
The molecular requirements for ethylene action were investigated using the pea straight growth test. Biological activity requires an unsaturated bond adjacent to a terminal carbon atom, is inverselyExpand

Ethylene inhibits cell division, DNA synthesis, and growth in the meristems of roots, shoots, and axillary buds, without influencing RNA synthesis. Apical dominance often is broken when ethylene isExpand

Ethylene Action and the Ripening of Fruits
Recent studies employing gas chromatography show that an amount of ethylene large enough to stimulate ripening is always present within a fruit before the respiratory climacteric begins. This factExpand

An explanation of the inhibition of root growth caused by indole-3-acetic Acid.
Low concentrations of indole-3-acetic acid inhibit the growth of pea root sections by inducing the formation of the growth regulator, ethylene gas. Ethylene is produced within 15 to 30 minutes afterExpand

Ethylene and auxin participation in pollen induced fading of vanda orchid blossoms.
Blossoms fromii several varieties of orchids fade prematurely when their pollinia are removed or disturbed (2,3,7), and also if the flowers are gassed with ethylene (8, 9, 10), pollinated (3, /7), orExpand

  • 1 September 1968
Evidence supporting the hypothesis that ethylene is involved in the control of senescence and abscission is reviewed. The data indicate that ethylene causes abscission in vivo by inhibiting auxinExpand

Resistance of citrus fruit to mass transport of water vapor and other gases.
The resistance of oranges (Citrus sinensis L. Osbeck) and grapefruit (Citrus paradisi Macf.) to ethylene, O(2), CO(2), and H(2)O mass transport was investigated anatomically with scanning electronExpand
