During the last decade a genetic approach based on the Arabidopsis 'triple response' to the hormone ethylene has allowed the identification of numerous components of the signal transduction pathway. Cloning of the genes and biochemical analysis of the proteins that they encode are uncovering the molecular mechanisms that allow a plant cell to perceive and respond to this gaseous regulator of plant growth/stress responses.
