Cloning the mRNA encoding 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate synthase, the key enzyme for ethylene biosynthesis in plants.

Abstract

Ethylene is the plant hormone that controls several features of plant growth and development. The rate-limiting step in its synthesis is the formation of the ethylene precursor 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid (ACC) from S-adenosylmethionine (AdoMet), catalyzed by ACC synthase. We have isolated a complementary DNA sequence encoding ACC synthase from… (More)
