General information
Name of the gene or DNA sequence
Aminocyclopropanecarboxylate oxidase gene
Alternate Genetic Element Name (synonyms)
1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate oxygenase
ACC Oxidase
Ethylene-forming Enzyme
Category of DNA sequence
  • Protein coding sequence
Is the gene / DNA sequence is a synthetic molecule?
Donor organism
Donor organism
Carica papaya - Papaya, Pawpaw, Papaw, CARPA
Donor organism point of collection
Variety: Eksotika
Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
Aminocyclopropanecarboxylate oxidase
Biological function
ACO2, encoding for the ACC oxidase enzyme, plays an important role in ethylene biosynthesis pathway. It oxidises 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate in the presence of ascorbate and oxygen to produce ethylene gas which has a role in the fruit ripening process.
