The production of ethylene by melon (Cucumis melo cv Cantaloup charentais) tissues is stimulated during incubation in the presence of fungal glycopeptides extracted from Colletotrichum lagenarium, a pathogen of melon. These glycopeptides, called elicitors of ethylene, are found in the mycelium, the cell wall, and the culture filtrate. Elicitation of ethylene is a relatively early phenomenon and lasts for several hours. Upon purification of the crude elicitor extract by gel filtration and ion… CONTINUE READING
