Rib segments excised from flower buds of Ipomoea tricolor Cav. pass through the same phases of senescence as the respective tissue on the intact plant. Such segments were used to correlate changes in lipid content with known symptoms of aging, such as rolling up of the ribs and ethylene formation. It was found that the level of phospholipid had already started to decline before visible signs of senescence were evident. As the segments began to roll up and to produce ethylene, the rate of… CONTINUE READING
