A desulfatation-oxidation cascade activates coumarin-based cross-linkers in the wound reaction of the giant unicellular alga Dasycladus vermicularis.

Abstract

Plants and algae protect themselves against environmental threats by fast, wound-activated processes in which metabolites that are stored within the tissue are transformed enzymatically. For example, it was recognized early on that plants and algae rely on the wound-activated action of lipases and lipoxygenases to produce a structural variety of oxylipins… (More)
