Basic mutant information   
Mutant name GVG::etr1-1 transgenic petunias
Mutant/Transgenic transgenic
Ecotype Petunia
Mutagenesis type transgene
(Semi-)Dominant/Recessive dominant
Description The inducible promoter-regulated expression of the Arabidopsis ethylene receptor mutant ethylene-insensitive1-1 (etr1-1) causes ethylene insensitivity in petunia. The induced expression of etr1-1 by a chemical inducer dexamethasone resulted in retarded senescence and reduced disease symptoms on detached leaves and flowers or intact plants

Defence responses regulated by jasmonate and delayed senescence caused by ethylene receptor mutation contribute to the tolerance of petunia to Botrytis cinerea.
