Q. Ripening mutants in tomato.

  • rin, nor, nr
  • nir, nor, nr
  • ron, rin, nr
  • None

A) rin, nor, nr

To achieve full ripening, climacteric fruits, such as tomato require synthesis, perception and signal transduction of the plant hormone ethylene. The nonripening phenotype of the dominant Green-ripe (Gr) and Never-ripe 2 (Nr-2) mutants of tomato is the result of reduced ethylene responsiveness in fruit tissues.
