Production and Release of Ethylene from 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic Acid in Lemna minor L. in the Dark and at Different Carbon Dioxide Compensation Concentrations.


Duckweed Lemna minor L. was used to investigate the in vivo conversion of 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid (ACC) to ethylene in the dark and at different CO(2) compensation concentrations. The plants were incubated in closed bottles. Various constant CO(2) concentrations in the range 50 to 1000 ppm were obtained by applying different light intensities… (More)
