The role of ethylene in the senescence of detached rice leaves in relation to their changes in 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid (ACC) content and ethylene production was studied. In freshly excised rice leaf segments, ACC level and ethylene production rates were very low. Following incubation, the rates of ethylene production increased and reached a maximum in 12 h, and subsequently declined. The rise of ethylene production was associated with a 20- to 30-fold increase in ACC level.Ethylene seems to be involved in the regulation of the senescence of detached rice leaves. This conclusion was based on the observations that (a) maximum ethylene production preceded chlorophyll degradation, (b) ACC application promoted chlorophyll degradation, (c) inhibitors of ethylene production and ethylene action retarded chlorophyll degradation, and (d) various treatments such as light, cycloheximide, alpha,alpha-dipyridyl, Ni(2+), and cold temperature, which retarded chlorophyll degradation, also inhibited ethylene production.Abscisic acid promoted senescence but significantly decreased ethylene production, whereas benzyladenine retarded senescence but promoted ethylene production. This is interpreted to indicate that abscisic acid treatment increased the tissue sensitivity to ethylene, whereas benzyladenine treatment decreased it.
