ethylene-related questions

Hi there:

I am wondering if anyone out there knows:

1. What concentration of ethaphon is inhibitory to Arabidopsis germination?

2.  What concentrations of ethaphon are reasonable to use for imbibition of
seed of a mutant that may be deficient in ethylene production? Any
suggestions as to  how to carry out such a test would be helpful too...

3. Where is the ACC made that is used for ethylene production during seed
set, in Arabidopsis? Is it all made in the root?

Thanks for any input. Would be happy to post the answers back if they are
of interest to others.
Regards
Barb Moffatt
