Both antagonists caused an inhibition of pollen tube growth during the first 6 h of pollination, indicating that pistil tissues are the primary target of the pollination-induced ethylene (Holden et al. 2003). 2 Application for Control of Plant Growth and Development Ethylene antagonists are intensively used to control plant growth and development. Early papers on the application of diazocyclopentadiene, 1-MCP, other cyclopropenes, and other blockers of ethylene action in plants were extensively reviewed elsewhere (Sisler and Serek 1997, 1999, 2003; Blankenship and Dole 2003).

It is not known if cyclopropenes stay intact or undergo ring-opening in situ. Both the formation of complexes with ring retention and ring cleavage followed by the formation of copper-carbon bond is possible (Visser et al. 1973; Halton and Banwell 1987). Cyclopropenes are known to react with thiols forming alkylthiocyclopropane adducts, and cyclopropene fatty acids and cyclopropenols irreversibly inhibit iron-containing fatty acyl CoA desaturases by the reaction of the cyclopropene ring with a cysteine residue at the active site of the enzyme (Reiser and Raju 1964; Quintana et al.
