Abstract Young roots of wheat, barley, and sorghum, as well as methyl jasmonate pretreated rice seedlings, undergo an unprecedented allene oxide synthase pathway targeted to previously unknown oxylipins 1–3. These Favorskii‐type products, (4Z)‐2‐pentyl‐4‐tridecene‐1,13‐dioic acid (1), (2′Z)‐2‐(2′‐octenyl)‐decane‐1,10‐dioic acid (2), and (2′Z,5′Z)‐2‐(2′,5′‐octadienyl)‐decane‐1,10‐dioic acid (3), have a carboxy function at the side chain, as revealed by their MS and NMR spectral data.

Cloning of wheat keto-acyl thiolase 2B reveals a role of jasmonic acid in grain weight determination

A role of the JA synthetic gene KAT-2B in controlling GW and its potential application value for wheat improvement is demonstrated.

Jasmonates: News on Occurrence, Biosynthesis, Metabolism and Action of an Ancient Group of Signaling Compounds

Jasmonic acid-induced gene expressions in the numerous biotic and abiotic stress responses and development are initiated in a well-studied complex regulation by homeostasis of transcription factors functioning as repressors and activators.

Jasmonates: what ALLENE OXIDE SYNTHASE does for plants

This work focuses on oxylipin-regulated coordination of growth/defense, how this optimizes defense, and how a plant's need for light can override jasmonate activity.



Novel Allene Oxide Synthase Products Formed via Favorskii‐Type Rearrangement: Mechanistic Implications for 12‐Oxo‐10,15‐phytodienoic Acid Biosynthesis

In vitro incubations of AOSs with α‐linolenic acid 13(S)‐hydroperoxide reliably afforded 1 along with 12‐oxo‐PDA and α‐ketol demonstrated that cyclopropanones are short‐lived AOS products along with allene oxides.

Tomato CYP74C3 is a Multifunctional Enzyme not only Synthesizing Allene Oxide but also Catalyzing its Hydrolysis and Cyclization

The results indicate that in contrast to the ordinary allene oxide synthases, LeAOS3 (CYP74C subfamily) is a multifunctional enzyme, catalyzing not only the synthesis, but also the hydrolysis and cyclization of allenes oxide.

Detection of a Pathway From Linoleate to a Novel Cyclopentenone: cis‐12‐Oxo‐10‐Phytoenoic Acid in Sunflower Roots

The results of methanol‐trapping experiments demonstrate that both 12‐oxo‐PEA and α‐ketol are formed through the unstable allene oxide intermediate, (9Z)‐12,13‐epoxyoctadeca‐9,11‐dienoic acid, which is the primary product of allenes oxide synthase.

The Crystal Structure of Arabidopsis thaliana Allene Oxide Cyclase: Insights into the Oxylipin Cyclization Reaction[W]

The crystallization and structure elucidation of Arabidopsis thaliana allene oxide cyclase 2 (AOC2), a key enzyme in the biosynthesis of jasmonates, is described and assigned as a low molecular weight member of the lipocalin family with enzymatic activity in plants.

Maize death acids, 9-lipoxygenase–derived cyclopente(a)nones, display activity as cytotoxic phytoalexins and transcriptional mediators

10-OPEA accumulation becomes wound inducible within fungal-infected tissues and at physiologically relevant concentrations acts as a phytoalexin by suppressing the growth of fungi and herbivores including Aspergillus flavus, Fusarium verticillioides, and Helicoverpa zea.

The lipoxygenase pathway in tulip (Tulipa gesneriana): detection of the ketol route.

Tulip bulbs possess abundant allene oxide cyclase activity, the substrate for which is linolenate 13(S)-hydroperoxide, even though 13( S)-lipoxygenase products were not detectable in the bulbs.

On the specificity of allene oxide cyclase

A number of oxygenated fatty acids having structural features in common with the natural allene oxides were tested as inhibitors of allene oxide cyclase and fatty acid hydroperoxides with a double bond at n−3 and with the hydroperoxide function at n −6 exhibit the highest affinity but the slowest reaction velocity.
