The Mechanism Of 1-Methylcyclopropene

- Jul 20, 2017 -


1-Methylcyclopropene is a very effective inhibitor of ethylene production and ethylene. As a plant hormone to promote mature and aging - ethylene can be produced by some plants themselves, but also in the storage environment and even the existence of a certain amount of air, ethylene and fat within the relevant receptor within the combination, in order to activate a series of mature Physiological and biochemical reactions, speed up aging and death. L-MCP can also bind well to ethylene receptors, but this combination does not cause a mature biochemical reaction, so it is advisable to administer 1-MCP before plant endogenous ethylene produces or exogenous ethylene And ethylene receptor binding, thus preventing the combination of ethylene and its receptor, a good extension of the fruit and vegetable mature aging process, to extend the shelf life.
