Herbivore-induced allene oxide synthase transcripts and jasmonic acid in Nicotiana attenuata.


Exogenous jasmonate treatment of Nicotiana attenuata Torr. ex Wats. plants elicits durable resistance against herbivores and attack from its specialist herbivore, Manduca sexta, results in an amplification of the transient wound-induced increase in endogenous jasmonic acid levels (JA). To understand whether this "JA burst" is under transcriptional control… (More)
