Conference paper


The biosynthesis of ethylene has been reviewed recently [9, 33]. In this paper we describe research progress that has occurred since then with regard to (a) ACC synthase, (b) ACC oxidase, (c) ACC N-malonyltransferase, and (d) the methionine cycle, as they related to ethylene biosynthesis.
