The effect of Co(2+) on ethylene production by mung bean (Phaseolus aureus Roxb.) and by apple tissues was studied. Co(2+), depending on concentrations applied, effectively inhibited ethylene production by both tissues. It also strongly inhibited the ethylene production induced by IAA, kinetin, IAA plus kinetin, Ca(2+), kinetin plus Ca(2+), or Cu(2+) treatments in mung bean hypocotyl segments. While Co(2+) greatly inhibited ethylene production, it had little effect on the respiration of apple… CONTINUE READING
