Response to perspective: "separation anxiety: an analysis of ethylene-induced cleavage of EIN2"

Plant Signal Behav. 2013 Aug;8(8):e25037. doi: 10.4161/psb.25037. Epub 2013 May 31.


Cooper questions one specific technical aspect of our study - the site of cleavage in EIN2 - and suggests that cleavage of EIN2 likely occurs elsewhere. Here, we explain how our immunoblotting, mass spectrometry and genetic mutation studies justify our conclusions.
