Many terrestrial plants respond to flooding with enhanced ethylene production. The roots of flooded plants produce 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid (ACC), which is transported from the root to the shoot, where it is converted to ethylene. In the roots, ACC is synthesized by ACC synthase, which is encoded by a multigene family. Previously, we identified two ACC synthase genes of tomato that are involved in flooding-induced ethylene production. Here, we report the cloning of LE-ACS7, a new… CONTINUE READING
