Conference paper

High ethylene (ET) synthesis observed under stress conditions produces stoichiometric amounts of CNand CO2. Normally, plant tissues have ample capacity to detoxify the cytosolic CN??−?to β-cyanoalanine by the action of β-cyanoalanine synthase (β-CAS), mainly present in the mitochondrial fraction.
