A coiling-inducing factor was isolated from tendrils of Bryonia dioica Jacq. and identified by infrared, 1H-, 13C-nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectrometry as α-linolenic acid. When applied to detached tendrils, exogenous α-linolenic acid, but not linoleic acid or oleic acid, induced tendril coiling. Further investigations showed that metabolites of α-linolenic acid, jasmonic acid and, even more so, methyljasmonate, are highly effective inducers of tendril coiling in B. dioica… Expand
Tendril Coiling in Grapevine: Jasmonates and a New Role for GABA?
TLDR
For grapevine, a strong activity of jasmonates in tendril coiling induction even without mechanical stimuli is demonstrated and the data suggest that GABA can independently promote tendrils coiling. Expand
Effects of octadecanoid metabolites and inhibitors on induced nicotine accumulation inNicotiana sylvestris
TLDR
The signal transduction pathway mediating wound-induced nicotine production shares many features of the pathway eliciting wound- induced proteinase inhibitor production but differs in not being regulated at the lipase step in jasmonic acid production and not being responsive to abscisic acid. Expand
A special pair of phytohormones controls excitability, slow closure, and external stomach formation in the Venus flytrap
TLDR
It is shown that insect-capture of Dionaea traps is modulated by the phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) and jasmonates, and formerly touch-insensitive trap sectors are converted into mechanosensitive ones. Expand
Quantification of rapid, transient increases in jasmonic acid in wounded plants using a monoclonal antibody
TLDR
Using this assay, it was found that levels of jasmonic acid rise immediately and transiently in the tissues analyzed as a consequence of wounding, providing further and direct evidence for the hypothesis that wound-induction of the plant defense reactions is mediated by endogenousJasmonates. Expand
Structural and biological diversity of cyclic octadecanoids, jasmonates, and mimetics
TLDR
The structural diversity of naturally occurring jasmonate-related compounds and synthetic mimics is discussed with respect to their corresponding biological activities and novel strategies for the synthesis of various indanoyl isoleucine conjugates will be presented. Expand
Structural and Biological Diversity of Cyclic Octadecanoids, Jasmonates, and Mimetics
The jasmonate family of plant signaling compounds comprises biologically highly active cyclopentenones (for example, 12-oxo-phytodienoic acid) (12-OPDA) and cyclopentanones (for example, jasmonicExpand
Induction of Tropane Alkaloid Formation in Transformed Root Cultures of Brugmansia suaveolens (Solanaceae)

TLDR
Hairy root cultures of Brugmansia suaveolens were employed to study the formation of tropane alkaloids, such as hyoscyamine, and the successful transformation was confirmed by analysing rolC and virC genes using polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Expand
Oxylipin Signaling and Plant Growth
Oxylipins are derived from the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids. Further conversion of the resulting fatty acid hydroperoxides gives rise to a multitude of oxylipin classes, includingExpand
Calcium changes and the response to methyl jasmonate in rice lodicules during anthesis
TLDR
Results indicate that EGTA had an antagonistic effect on the methyl jasmonate-induced floret opening in rice, and changes in calcium precipitates before and after anthesis indicate that the opening and closing of florets correlates with the calcium level in lodicule cells. Expand

Biosynthesis of jasmonic Acid by several plant species.
TLDR
The presence of enzymes which convert 12-oxo-PDA to jasmonic acid in several plant species indicates that this may be a general metabolic pathway in plants. Expand
The role of auxin in the early events of the contact coiling of tendrils
TLDR
It is concluded that following mechanical stimulation, auxin acts to induce coiling by immediately interacting with an auxin-specific receptor in the tip of the tendril, and not by being translocated basipetally. Expand
Identification of Traumatin, a Wound Hormone, as 12-Oxo-trans-10-dodecenoic Acid.
TLDR
The results indicated that the compound identified as traumatic acid is formed by autooxidation of trans- 10-ODA and that trans-10- ODA is a natural compound with growth-regulating properties. Expand

SummaryCoiling of intact or excised cucumber (Cucumis sativus) tendrils can be induced by IAA or ethylene. The velocity of coiling in different regions of the tendrils correlates with the capacityExpand
Pathways of Fatty Acid hydroperoxide metabolism in spinach leaf chloroplasts.
TLDR
The variation in enzyme activity ratios with extraction methods suggests that hydroperoxide lyase is activated by plant injury and thus may function in a wound response. Expand

NEFA and lysophospholipids, at levels similar to those occurring in human plasma, may account for all of the NaK-ATPase inhibitory activity observed in human Plasma fractions. Expand
