Jasmonate Signal Pathway in Arabidopsis

Xiao-Yi Shan, Zhi-Long Wang and Daoxin Xie   

  • Published:2007-01-01


Jasmonates (JAs), which include jasmonic acid and its cyclopentane derivatives are synthesized from the octadecanoid pathway and widely distributed throughout the plant kingdom. JAs modulate the expression of numerous genes and mediate responses to stress, wounding, insect attack, pathogen infection, and UV damage. They also affect a variety of processes in many plant developmental processes. The JA signal pathway involves two important events: the biosynthesis of JA and the transduction of JA signal. Several important Arabidopsis mutants in jasmonate signal pathway were described in this review.Author for correspondence. Tel: +86 (0)10 6279 6679; E-mail: shanxd05@mails.tsinghua.edu.cn
