Ozone versus ethylene Figure 2. Effect of the ethylene response inhibitor 1-MCP on GLB promoter responsiveness towards O3 and ethylene.

Tobacco plants transformed with the 1.63 kb GLB::GUS construct were exposed overnight to 1-MCP (1 μl/l) and then treated with O3 (300 nl/l) or ethylene (10 μl/l) for 8 h, while control plants were held in pollutant- free air after 1-MCP pretreatment. Samples for GUS activity measurement were taken immediately before and 24 h after onset of fumigation from opposite halves of a middle-aged leaf. Means ± SE (n = 3).
