Ethylene-enhanced Ion and Sucrose Efflux in Morning Glory Flower Tissue.

Rib tissue segments excised from open flowers or buds of Ipomoea tricolor Cav. and floated on aqueous media responded to ethylene treatment by rolling up after 2 to 3 hours; a simple method for quantitating the rolling up is presented. The rolling up response was temperature- and oxygen-dependent and was critically affected by the pH of the medium. The… CONTINUE READING
