Abstract. The effect of methyl jasmonate (MJ) on changes of oxygen-scavenging enzyme activities and membrane lipid composition was studied in strawberry leaves under water stress. Under water stress, MJ treatment reduced the increase of peroxidase (EC; POD) activity, maintained higher catalase (EC; CAT) and superoxide dismutase (EC; SOD) activities, and ascorbic acid content. In addition, MJ treatment reduced transpiration and membrane-lipid peroxidation as expressed… 
Dual role of methyl jasmonate in physiological responses of soybea (Glycine max L.) plant
The application of methyl assonate at low concentrations enhanced the antioxidant defence system, at the same time, decreased lipid peroxidation and improved growth parameter, so that increasing the antioxidant capacity of plants did not decrease the oxidative stress and did not improve plants growth.
Effect of Methyl Jasmonate on antioxidative enzyme activities and on the contents of ROS and H 2 O 2 in Ricinus communis leaves
abstract Jasmonates are a class of plant hormones that mediate various aspects in gene and metabolic regulation, defense, stress responses, reproduction and, possibly, communication. Oxidative stress
Effect of Methyl Jasmonate on antioxidative enzyme activities and on the contents of ROS and H2O2 in Ricinus communis leaves
The effects of methyl jasmonate (JAME) treatment on the reactive oxygen species (ROS) and on the activities of H2O2 scavenging enzymes, such as superoxide dismutase (SOD) and APX, were verified in Ricinus communis leaves.
In the present study, the interactive effects of methyl jasmonate (0, 0.01, and 0.1 mM) and cadmium chloride (0 and 500 μM) on growth, biochemical, and physiological parameters of soybean plants were
Effects of methyl jasmonate in regulating cadmium induced oxidative stress in soybean plant (Glycine max L.)
The jasmonates are a group of plant–growth regulators that cause a wide variety of plant responses. Cadmium (Cd) is a toxic heavy metal, which causes toxicity in living organisms, and is considered
Methyl Jasmonate-Induced Changes in Non- and Antioxidant-Enzymatic Defense in Peppermint (Mentha piperita)
Peppermint (Mentha piperita L.), a herbaceous and perennial species whichis produced mainly for the medicine and food. The peppermint plants were initiated from 10 cm-long rhizome cuttings followed
Methyl jasmonate pretreatment promotes the growth and photosynthesis of maize seedlings under saline conditions by enhancing the antioxidant defense system.
It is demonstrated that MeJA pretreatment promoted the development and photosynthesis of MeJA-treated maize seedlings under saline conditions by increasing the efficiency of the antioxidant defense system against oxidative damage.


Effect of water stress on the lipid and fatty acid composition of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) chloroplasts
Changes in the lipid and fatty acid composition of cotton chloroplasts under water stress might affect the properties of the thylakoid membrane and thereby the photosynthetic activity and the compartmentation of the leaf cells.
Effect of paclobutrazol on membrane lipids in apple seedlings
There were no significant alterations in the fatty-acid composition of glyco- and phospholipids from paclobutrazol-treated apple seedlings, and a significant decrease in the content of β-sitosterol and campesterol occurred in treated tissues.
Effect of methyl jasmonate on the growth and drought resistance in peanut seedlings
Morphological, anatomical and physiclogical changes were found in treated seedlings, particularly at a concentration of 125 mg/L, and methyl jasmonate can reduce the loss of water and enhance the storage of water in leaves under water stress and may help peanut seedlings to adapt to drought.
Lipid Composition of Zea mays Seedlings and Water Stress-Induced Changes
The imposition of a polyethylene glycol-induced osmotic stress of-1-5 MPa for 48 h on 28 d old Zea mays (cv. Style Pak) seedlings resulted in a 44% decreased stem dry weight and increased
Lipid Changes in Maize Seedlings in Response to Field Water Deficits
Under stress conditions, free sterol levels increase without showing any change in the ratio of 'more planar' to 'lessPlanar' sterol, and the increase in free sterols and the decrease in phospholipid levels under water deficit conditions raise the sterol/phospholipids molar ratio 3-fold.
Physiological and biochemical changes related to methyl jasmonate‐induced chilling tolerance of rice (Oryza sativa L.) seedlings
It is found that putrescine accumulation is required for the induction of chilling tolerance of rice seedlings by MeJA, which greatly improved the survival ratio of chilled seedlings and ameliorated chilling injury such as demolition of membrane structure.
