Fatty acid signaling in Arabidopsis

  title={Fatty acid signaling in Arabidopsis},
  author={Edward E. Farmer and Hans U Weber and Sabine Vollenweider},
Many organisms use fatty acid derivatives as biological regulators. In plants, for example, fatty acid-derived signals have established roles in the regulation of developmental and defense gene expression. Growing numbers of these compounds, mostly derived from fatty acid hydroperoxides, are being characterized. The model plant Arabidopsis thaliana is serving a vital role in the discovery of fatty acid-derived signal molecules and the genetic analysis of their synthesis and action. The… CONTINUE READING
