An important trait of tomato is the rate of fruit ripening, strongly dependent on ethylene production. The ripening-related ethylene synthesis in tomato is controlled mainly by 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate synthase LE-ACS2 and LE-ACS4 isoenzymes (Rottmann et al., 1991, J. Mol. Biol. 222: 937; Lincoln et al., 1993, J. Biol. Chem. 268: 19422; Barry et al., 2000, Plant Physiol. 123: 979). In spite of numerous reports on the LE-ACS2 and LE-ACS4 gene expression, only ones considered the genomic organisation each of these genes (Rottmann et al., 1991; Lincoln et al., 1993) reported one copy of each of these genes in tomato cv VF36. In this article we suggest that the genomic organisation of LE-ACS2 and LE-ACSS4 genes may depend on tomato cultivars and may differ from that described by the above authors. The results of Southern analyses of genomic DNAs from 17-day old seedlings (cultivars Jaga, Halicz, Betalux, New Yorker) imply that the genomic organisation of LE-ACS2 and LE-ACS4 genes in Polish cultivars differs from that reported for cv VF36.
