Abstract:

Ethylene gas is one of the most important phytohormones that are involved in the regulation of diverse growth and development processes in plants. Recently, Chinese scientists have made breakthrough toward the understanding of the molecular mechanism of ethylene signaling transduction.

Key words: ethylene, EIN2, EBF1/2, mRNA translation, P-body
