The effect of heavy metal stress as a potent abiotic elicitor for triggering an accumulation of jasmonic acid (JA) was investigated. Copper and cadmium in in vivo conditions induced accumulation of jasmonates in mature leaves of Arabidopsis thaliana and in young and oldest Phaseolus coccineus plants. The dynamics of jasmonate accumulation showed a biphasic character in both plants. In the first phase, after 7 (A. thaliana) or 14h (P. coccineus) of exposure to Cu or Cd, a rapid increase of JA… CONTINUE READING
