Differential counteraction of ethylene effects by gibberellin a(3) and n(6)-benzyladenine in senescing citrus peel.


Treatment of mature citrus fruit (Citrus sinensis) with ethylene induced rapid chlorophyll destruction, a rise in respiration, a release of free amino acids, an accumulation of reducing sugars, and an appearance of phenylalanine ammonia lyase activity. Gibberellin A(3) (GA(3)) and N(6)-benzyladenine (BA) opposed the effects of ethylene on chlorophyll, amino… (More)
