Ethylene is a plant hormone of wide-ranging diverse effects on plants physiology and development. This simple molecule interacts with other hormones and factors with very versatile and fantastic manner for executing growth as well as developmental events in plants. Ethylene has strong impact on myriad developmental events of plants from germination to senescence. Here intent is to focus and highlight the importance, synthesis, regulatory genetic network and signaling integration of this versatile molecule that affects plant growth and development in a myriad ways.
