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

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

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.
