Lipoxygenases (LOXs) catalyze the formation of fatty acid hydroperoxides involved in responses to stresses. This study examines the expression of a non-traditional dual positional specific maize LOX in response to wounding or methyl jasmonate (MeJA). Full-length maize LOX cDNA was expressed in Escherichia coli, and recombinant LOX was purified and(More)
This study presents a kinetic analysis of the response to wounding in rice plants. In particular, jasmonic acid, salicylic acid, and lipoxygenase activity were measured in leaves of wounded rice plants during the early tillering phase. The results show that endogenous jasmonic acid transiently increases to a maximum 30 min after wounding (jasmonic acid(More)
