Metabolic profiling of oxylipins in germinating cucumber seedlings – lipoxygenase-dependent degradation of triacylglycerols and biosynthesis of volatile aldehydes


A particular isoform of lipoxygenase (LOX) localized on lipid bodies was shown by earlier investigations to play a role in initiating the mobilization of triacylglycerols during seed germination. Here, further physiological functions of LOXs within whole cotyledons of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) were analyzed by measuring the endogenous amounts of LOX… (More)
