The properties of enzymes involved in ethylene biosynthesis are reviewed and progress toward the purification of these enzymes is described. The enzyme whose activity usually limits ethylene biosynthesis is 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate (ACC) synthase. Even though its level in plants is extremely low, it has now been purified from several sources. The enzyme that converts ACC to ethylene does not survive homogenization, apparently because it is membrane-bound and because its activity… Expand
Regulation of Ethylene Biosynthesis
TLDR
These two distinct regulatory inputs that control the spatial and temporal patterns of ethylene biosynthesis are reviewed. Expand
Biochemical and Molecular Characterization of Ethylene Forming Enzyme from Avocado
Ethylene-forming enzyme (EFE) catalyzes the final step in biosynthesis of the phytohormone ethylene in higher plants, the oxidation of 1-aminocyclopropane-l-carboxylic acid (ACC). EFE extracted fromExpand
Ethylene production by micro-organisms.
TLDR
Following further research, practicable new processes for production of ethylene will be established and will herald a new age free from the threat of shortages of petroleum resources. Expand
Structure, catalytic activity and evolutionary relationships of 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate synthase, the key enzyme of ethylene synthesis in higher plants.
Both ethylene and the enzymes of ethylene synthesis are subjects of intensive scientific investigation. The present review discusses structure, catalytic activity and evolutionary relationships ofExpand
Regulation of ethylene biosynthesis at the level of 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate oxidase (ACO) gene
TLDR
This review summarizes in detail the knowledge about organization and gene structure, and transcriptional expression of ACO genes from different plant species and the perspectives of manipulating ACO gene as a method in biotechnological modification of ethylene synthesis are discussed. Expand
Regulation of ethylene biosynthesis in higher plants by carbon dioxide
Abstract Elevated CO2 levels used with or without reduced O2 levels regulate many biochemical and physiological processes in higher plants, among them ethylene biosynthesis. The mode of action ofExpand
1-Aminocyclopropane-1-Carboxylic Acid Oxidase (ACO): The Enzyme That Makes the Plant Hormone Ethylene
TLDR
The importance of ACO being a prime target for genetic engineering and precision breeding, in order to control plant ethylene production levels is highlighted, with an emphasis on the transcriptional, post-transcriptional, and post- translational control. Expand
The biosynthesis and metabolism of the aspartate derived amino acids in higher plants.
TLDR
The essential amino acids lysine, threonine, methionine and isoleucine are synthesised in higher plants via a common pathway starting with aspartate through the regulation of the pathway, and the properties of the key enzymes described. Expand
Regulation of ethylene gas biosynthesis by the Arabidopsis ETO1 protein
TLDR
It is reported that another ethylene-overproducer mutation, eto1, is in a gene that negatively regulates ACS activity and ethylene production, and it is proposed that ETO1 serves as a substrate-specific adaptor protein that permits rapid modulation of the concentration of ethylene. Expand
Isolation and characterization of a gene involved in ethylene biosynthesis from Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
In whole seedlings, expression of pEAT1 was enhanced by wounding, ethrel, Fe2+, and 1-amino-cyclopropane-carboxylic acid (ACC) treatments, and in contrast, heat shock had no effect on the expression. Expand

TLDR
Data indicate the following sequence for the pathway of ethylene biosynthesis in apple tissue: methionine --> S-adenosylmethionine ― ACC ― ethylene --> methylthioadenosine --> ACC --> ethylene. Expand
Properties and Partial Purification of 1-Aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate Synthase.
TLDR
SDS-gel electrophoresis and fluorography showed that the pattern of incorporation of l-[(35)S]methionine into protein changed with time after wounding of the tissue, consistent with the hypothesis that ACC synthase is synthesized de novo following wounding of tomato pericarp tissue. Expand
S-adenosylmethionine-dependent inactivation and radiolabeling of 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate synthase isolated from tomato fruits.
TLDR
Results suggest that the substrate SAM acts as an enzyme-activated inactivator of ACC synthase by covalently linking a fragment of SAM molecule to the active site ofACC synthase, resulting in the inactivation of the enzyme. Expand
Ethylene production from methionine.
TLDR
Hydrogen peroxide is an intermediate in this reaction and can support ethylene production in the model system in anaerobic atmospheres and indicates that ethylene is derived from the -CH( 2).CH(2)- group of methionine. Expand
