- Touch stimulation of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) seedlings led to a strong and dose-dependent increase in the level of lipoxygenase mRNA transcripts. The touch-induced response occurred within 1 h and was transient. A similar response was observed after wind treatment and wounding. The mechanical strain-regulated lipoxygenase might translate mechanical strain into lipoxygenase pathway-dependent growth responses.
