The use of antisense transgenic tomato plants to study the role of ethylene in response to waterlogging


, : The use of antisense transgenic tomato plants to study the role of ethylene in response to waterlogging. Cellular and molecular aspects of the plant hormone ethylene Proceedings of the International Symposium on Cellular and Molecular Aspects of Biosynthesis and Action of the Plant Hormone Ethylene, Agen, France, August 31 September 4, 1992: 261-262

Results are reported of a study of the extent to which epinasty, ethylene production and accumulation of ACC and bound (putative malonyl) ACC in waterlogged plants are affected by pTOM13 (ripening-related cDNA clone) antisense transformation of the tomato cultivar Ailsa Craig. The pTOM13 antisense plants reacted more slowly to waterlogging than the wild type plants, showing a 4 h delay to the start of a considerably reduced epinastic curvature.

The infection of tomato fruit by the postharvest pathogen Colletotrichum gloeosporioides did not proceed until the onset of ripening in response to ethylene. Compared with fruit from wild-type plants, infection progressed more slowly in transgenic...

Waterlogging the soil promotes epinastic growth of tomato petioles and increases the concentration of ethylene which can be extracted from various parts of the shoot. These concentrations exceed those normally required to promote epinasty when app...
