1-Aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic Acid is an intermediate in the conversion of methionine to ethylene during the ripening in apples. It also plays an important role in the biosynthesis of the plant hormone ethylene.1-Aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic Acid is shown to block convulsions and death produced by NMDA exposure, significantly reducing seizure induction and cell death of NMDA-treated hippocampal neurons. 1-Aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic Acid is produced endogenously in the tomato and other higher plants as a product of the action of 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid synthase in the biosynthesis of ethylene.
