About this book

There have been rapid advances in elucidating the mechanisms of ethylene perception and synthesis by plants, the signal transduction pathway, and ethylene control in transgenic plants. It is noted here that studies on ethylene have led the way in enhancing our understanding of the biosynthesis of a plant hormone at the biochemical and molecular levels, and future studies should further help in the understanding of the biochemical machinery responsible for the perception and signal transduction of this plant hormone. The purpose of the papers here is the critical assessment of the ethylene synthesis, perception and signal transduction, its role in pathogenesis and stress, its involvement in plant growth and development and, lastly, the biotechnological control of its formation and function.

'...contains several excellent contributions... of high interest primarily to all persons interested in ethylene research and the function and biology of ehtylene. It can also be recommended to graduate students and scientists in plant biology, plant biochemistry and molecular biology as well as biotechnology and food science.' Journal of Plant Physiology, 157:2
