- ... The importance of the two chiral centers at C-3 and C-7 in the molecular structure of jasmonic acid in plant responses was investigated. We separated methyl jasmonate (MeJA) into (3R)- and (3S)-isomers with a fixed stereochemistry at C-3, but epimerization at C-7 is possible. The four isomers of the nonepimerizable analog 7-methyl MeJA were synthesized. These six esters and their corresponding aci ...

- ... Pollen development in angiosperms is regulated by the interaction of products contributed by both the gametophytic (haploid) and sporophytic (diploid) genomes. In entomophilous species, lipids are major products of both sporophytic and gametophytic metabolism during pollen development. Mature pollen grains of Brassica napus are shown to contain three major acyl lipid pools as follows: (i) the extr ...
