a b s t r a c t This work determined if the ethylene dependent signal pathway was required for antagonist-mediated fruit defense mechanisms through investigation of disease resistance against Penicillium digitatum in Ponkan mandarin induced by 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP), an inhibitor of ethylene perception, and Rhodosporidium paludigenum. Blocking ethylene perception with 1-MCP resulted in an increase in ACS1, ACS2 and ACO expression, and consequently an increase in ethylene production during… CONTINUE READING
