In order to understand more details about the role of abscisic acid (ABA) in fruit ripening and senescence, six 740 bp cDNAs (LeNCED1, LeNCED2, PpNCED1, VVNCED1, DKNCED1 and CMNCED1) which encode 9-cis-epoxycarotenoid dioxygenase (NCED) as a key enzyme in ABA biosynthesis, were cloned from fruits of tomato, peach, grape, persimmon and melon using an RT-PCR approach. A Blast homology search revealed a similarity of amino acid 85.76% between the NCEDs. A relationship between ABA and ethylene… CONTINUE READING
