- ... 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 ...

- ... An Arabidopsis oleosin gene including 860 bp of promoter as well as coding sequence was fused to the reporter, beta-glucuronidase (GUS). In transient expression assays following particle bombardment, the Arabidopsis gene in both transcriptional and translational fusions with GUS was functional in a range of oilseed embryos as determined histochemically and fluorimetrically. Significantly, upon hom ...
