OsJAR1 and OsJAR2 are jasmonyl-L-isoleucine synthases involved in wound- and pathogen-induced jasmonic acid signalling.
The synthesis of JA-Ile was catalysed by JA-Ile synthase, which is a member of the group I GH3 family of proteins. Here, we showed evidence that OsGH3.5 (OsJAR1) and OsGH3.3 (OsJAR2) are theExpand

Bacterial Alarmone, Guanosine 5′‐Diphosphate 3′‐Diphosphate (ppGpp), Predominantly Binds the β′ Subunit of Plastid‐Encoded Plastid RNA Polymerase in Chloroplasts
It's alarming: Bacterial alarmone guanosine 5′‐diphosphate 3′‐diphosphate (ppGpp), which is a key regulatory molecule that controls the stringent response, also exists in chloroplasts of plant cells.Expand

Novel Cyclic Peptide, Epichlicin, from the Endophytic Fungus, Epichloe typhina
The novel cyclic peptide, epichlicin, was isolated from Epichloe typhina, an endophytic fungus of the timothy plant (Phleum pretense L.). Its structure was determined by NMR studies and by massExpand

Kinetics of the Accumulation of Jasmonic Acid and Its Derivatives in Systemic Leaves of Tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum cv. Xanthi nc) and Translocation of Deuterium-Labeled Jasmonic Acid from the
In plants, the mobile signal needed for wound-induced systemic acquired resistance (WSR) has been elusive. The signal compound involved in WSR is supposed to be JA or its derivatives. On the basis ofExpand
