Organization and Structure of 1-Aminocyclopropane-1-Carboxylate Oxidase Gene Family from Peach

  • Chapter
Biology and Biotechnology of the Plant Hormone Ethylene II

Abstract

ACC oxidase (ACO) catalyzes the last step of ethylene biosynthesis, converting 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate to ethylene. Previous work described the isolation and characterization of an ACO peach cDNA clone (pch313) [1]. Southern analysis indicated that also in peach ACO is encoded by a multigene family in which at least three members are present [4]. Herein the isolation and characterization of two (PP-ACO1 and PP-ACO2) of these members is reported.
