- ... 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 ...

- ... We have examined the effects of stereochemically pure analogs of abscisic acid (ABA) on three responses in Brassica napus microspore embryos. The analogs used include modifications to natural (S-) (+)-ABA (=N-ABA) at the C-1 and C-1' positions. At the C-1 position, the carboxylic acid function was replaced with an alcohol, aldehyde, or methyl ester functional group, and at the chiral C-1' position ...
