Amino acid conjugates of jasmonic acid are found to elicit production of the flavonoid phytoalexin, sakuranetin in rice leaves. The elicitation is shown to arise from induction of naringenin 7-O-methyltransferase, a key enzyme of sakuranetin biosynthesis. The (-)-phenylalanine conjugate, one of the active compounds, is characterized by high activity for both sakuranetin and enzyme induction and low phytotoxicity against rice growth. Both (+)-enantiomers of the conjugates and free amino acids do… CONTINUE READING
