Ethylene-regulated expression of ACC oxidase and ACC synthase genes in mung bean hypocotyls

Ethylene induces an increase in transcript levels of the ACC oxidase gene (VR- ACO1) but suppresses expression of the ACC synthase gene (VR- ACS1) in etiolated mung bean hypocotyls. Here, treatment with either the transcription inhibitor α-amanitin or the protein synthesis inhibitor cycloheximide (CHI) completely abolished ethylene-induced accumulation ofVR… CONTINUE READING
