De novo synthesis and external binding of ethylene appear required for induction of necrosis in tomato caused by AAL-toxin, secreted by Alternaria alternata f.sp. lycopersici. In the presence of AAL-toxin both the ethylene action inhibitor, silver thiosulfate, and ethylene synthesis inhibitor, 1-aminoethoxyvinylglycine (AVG), reduced the amount of AAL-toxin-induced necrosis.
