Cut flowers

Currently, I am doing a little research on the effect of different
abiotic influences on the life of a cut flower, in particular the cut
daffodil.

I have read that ethylene causes damage to flowers (e.g. do not place
your cut flowers near a banana when it turns yellow from green).

How does this take place? What causes the plant to die when it contacts
this gas?
