When the ethylene-enhanced degreening of radish cotyledons held in the dark was investigated, the rates of chlorophyll (Chl) catabolism decreased and the action of ethylene was blocked by inhibitors. Inhibition of the degreening of cotyledons occurred when cotyledons of seedlings were treated with cycloheximide (CHI), actinomycin D (ACD), silver nitrate (AgNO3), silver thiosulfate (STS) and allyl-isothiocyanate (AITC), but not chloramphenicol (CAP), an inhibitor of plastid RNA synthesis.
