Keywords navigation



Protein involved in the synthesis of oxygenated fatty acids (oxylipins), including jasmonic acid (jasmonate) (JA) and its derivatives. Oxylipins regulate many defense and developmental pathways in plants. JA is involved in wound-mediated signaling pathways, plant defense, and reproductive development. It acts as a growth inhibitor and promotes senescence.
