The dioxygenation of polyunsaturated fatty acids is mainly catalyzed by members of the lipoxygenase enzyme family in flowering plants and mosses. Lipoxygenase products can be metabolized further and are known as signalling substances that play a role in plant development as well as in plant responses to wounding and pathogen attack. Apart from accumulating data in mammals, flowering and non-flowering plants, information on the relevance of lipid peroxide metabolism in prokaryotic organisms is… CONTINUE READING
