1-Aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate (ACC) oxidase enzyme catalyses the final step in ethylene biosynthesis, converting 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid to ethylene. A cDNA clone encoding an ACC oxidase, ST-ACO3, was isolated from potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) by differential screening of a Fusarium eumartii infected-tuber cDNA library. The deduced amino acid sequence exhibited similarity to other ACC oxidase proteins from several plants species. Northern blot analysis revealed that the ST… CONTINUE READING
