Sucrose: patterns of uptake and some effects on cut flower senescence

, : Sucrose: patterns of uptake and some effects on cut flower senescence. Acta Horticulturae (41): 45-56

Movement of 14C was studied in cut roses and carnations using a pulse of 14C-sucrose and a distilled water chase. The label moved selectively to leaves and stems, but not to flower heads during the pulse. During the chase, however, 14C moved from leaves and stems into the flower heads. Age had no effect on this movement into rose flower heads, but movement of 14C into carnation flower heads diminished as cut carnations aged.

The translocation and distribution of dry matter were studied in the floral and vegetative parts of cut carnations during senescence. The change in dry weights of the tissues and the amount of radioactivity recovered from them after feeding with 1...

Nitric oxide (NO*) is an endogenously produced highly bioactive molecule in plants. It has been suggested that NO* acts as a natural senescence-delaying growth regulator and a part of its action are mediated via ethylene metabolism. Therefore, NO*...

RTE1 (REVERSION-TO-ETHYLENE SENSITIVITY1) was identified as a positive regulator of ETR1 (ethylene resistant1) function in Arabidopsis; RTEs are a small gene family. Ethylene plays a crucial role in the senescence of carnation (Dianthus caryophyll...

All treatments delayed the climacteric peak, those treatments containing sucrose delaying it most. Hydroxyquinoline cit...
