Pollination-Induced Ethylene in Carnation (Role of Stylar Ethylene in Corolla Senescence).

In carnation (Dianthus caryophyllus L. cv White Sim) cell to cell communication between the pollen and pistil induces ovary development and corolla senescence. The production of elevated ethylene by the style is the first measurable postpollination response. This is followed by a wave of ethylene production from the other floral organs. To investigate the… CONTINUE READING
