Ethylene Production in Spinach Leaves during Floral Induction

|Abstract||Spinach plants were induced to flower by transferring them from short days to continuous light. Their leaf laminae released more ethylene than those from vegetative plants. These leaves also exhibited a greater capacity to convert exogenous ACC into ethylene. Cell wall preparations from the leaves of continuously illuminated plants also converted exogenous ACC into ethylene more readily than extracts from short day plants. These effects and also those previously reported for peroxidases appear very similar to these brought about by various environmental stresses such as pollution and mechanical irritation.|
