Jasmonates are well documented for their ability to modulate the expression of plant genes and to influence specific aspects of disease/pest resistance traits. We and others have been studying the synthesis of sesquiterpene phytoalexins in elicitor/pathogen-challenged plants and have sought to determine if methyl jasmonate (MeJA) could substitute for fungal elicitors in the induction of capsidiol accumulation by tobacco cell cultures. The current results demonstrate that MeJA does in fact… CONTINUE READING
