Plant jasmonic acid (JA) and structurally similar animal prostaglandins play pivotal roles in regulating cellular responses against environmental cues, including the innate immune response(s). In plants, JA and its immediate precursor 12-oxo-phytodienoic acid (OPDA) are synthesized by the octadecanoid pathway, which employs at least five enzymes (lipase,(More)
A novel ozone-sensitive mutant was isolated from Arabidopsis T-DNA tagging lines. This mutant revealed severe foliar injury and higher ethylene emission than the wild type under ozone exposure. The ozone-induced injury and ethylene emission were suppressed by pretreatment with aminoethoxyvinyl glycine, an inhibitor of ethylene biosynthesis, both in this(More)
Ozone (O(3)), a serious air pollutant, is known to significantly reduce photosynthesis, growth, and yield and to cause foliar injury and senescence. Here, integrated transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics approaches were applied to investigate the molecular responses of O(3) in the leaves of 2-week-old rice (cv. Nipponbare) seedlings exposed to 0.2(More)
UNLABELLED Two global approaches were applied to develop an inventory of differentially expressed proteins and genes in rice (cv. Nipponbare) seedling grown on Murashige and Skoog medium with and without jasmonic acid (JA). JA significantly reduced the growth of shoot, root, leaf, and leaf sheath depending on JA concentration (1, 2, 5, 10, 25, and 50(More)
We report isolation and transcriptional profiling of rice (Oryza sativa L.) mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), OsSIPK (salicylic acid-induced protein kinase). OsSIPK gene is located on chromosome 6 most probably existing as a single copy in the rice genome, and encodes 398 amino acid polypeptide having the MAPK family signature and phosphorylation(More)
Rice, a first cereal crop whose draft genome sequence from two subspecies (japonica-type cv. Nipponbare and indica-type 93-11) was available in 2002, along with its almost complete genome sequence in 2005, has drawn the attention of researchers worldwide because of its immense impact on human existence. One of the most critical research areas in rice is to(More)
Plants have developed multifaceted defensive systems against adverse environmental factors. One such recognized system is the production of metabolites in plants. Jasmonic acid (JA) and its metabolite methyl jasmonate (MeJA) are known to play key roles in metabolites production. The role of MeJA as a mobile signal has been established in Arabidopsis and(More)
Rice Oryza sativa accelerated cell death and resistance 1 (OsACDR1) encodes a putative Raf-like mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase (MAPKKK). We had previously reported upregulation of the OsACDR1 transcript by a range of environmental stimuli involved in eliciting defense-related pathways. Here we apply biochemical, gain and loss-of-function(More)
We identified 4-oxo-(E)-2-hexenal (4-OHE) as a common component of the secretion from both Dolycoris baccarum nymphs (66.5 ± 34.7 µg/bug) and adults (87.4 ± 48.0 µg/bug) by GC/MS. We also found that this compound inhibited the growth of bacteria starting at 10 µg. The stronger antibacterial activity of 4-OHE than that of (E)-2-hexenal and (E)-2-octenal(More)
Octadecanoid pathway components, 12-oxo-phytodieonic acid (OPDA) and jasmonic acid (JA), are key biologically active regulators of plant self-defense response(s). However, to date these compounds have been studied mostly in dicots, and used large (1-10 g fresh weight, FW) samples for quantification, even when examined in mature rice plants, which is a(More)
