Application Notes
ACC is the key intermediate between methionine and ethylene production in plants.2 It is generally associated with the wounding process production of ethylene. Endogenous concentrations in leaves generally range from ~0.1-10 nmol/g. It has been used to ripen climacteric fruit, such as apple. 3
