Ethylene (With Caren Chang) For thousands of years
people have been inducing fruit ripening by manipulating ethylene
levels, either by wounding or exposing unripe fruit to smoke containing
ethylene. What is this tiny hormone, where does it come from and how
does it control fruit ripening? How was the seedling triple response
instrumental in working out the ethylene signaling pathway? And how can
ethylene help rice become flood tolerant, through SNORKELS? First posted October 28, 2010, revised March 11, 2016.
