Rhizobitoxine, an inhibitor of methionine biosynthesis in Salmonella typhimurium, inhibited ethylene production about 75% in light-grown sorghum seedlings and in senescent apple tissue. Ethylene production stimulated by indoleacetic acid and kinetin in sorghum was similarly inhibited. With both apple and sorghum, the inhibition could only be partially… CONTINUE READING
