Both methyl jasmonate (MJ) and ethylene have been implicated in promoting senescence, but the specific roles of each and the mechanisms by which they act are not well known. We tested the possibility that MJ and ethylene interact to promote senescence. In sunflower seedlings, the ability of MJ to affect ethylene metabolism was investigated in hypocotyls, cotyledons, and leaves. 1-aminocylcopropane-1-carboxylic acid (ACC)-dependent ethylene production was promoted to different extents depending… CONTINUE READING
