Co-suppression of the EIN2-homology gene LeEIN2 inhibits fruit ripening and reduces ethylene sensitivity in tomato

Abstract

EIN2 (ethylene insensitive 2) is a very important component in the ethylene signal transduction pathway. Recently, the genomic DNA and full-length cDNA of LeEIN2 (tomato EIN2) have been isolated in our laboratory. To reveal the function of LeEIN2, transgenic tomato plants with reduced expression levels of LeEIN2 were produced. The fruit ripening and… (More)
