Lipoxygenase in the plant kingdom. II. Physiological functions proposed
Keywords:Information (paper), Lipid peroxidation, Lipoxygenase (pathway), Physiological functions
In spite of the large number of publications about lipoxygenase, little definitive information is available concerning physiological roles for plant lipoxygenase. There are three major areas of plant physiology where lipoxygenase has been mainly implicated: 1) growth and development, 2) senescence, and 3) wound response and pest resistance. This section summarizes results from the areas of investigation which are most likely to elucidate the role of lipoxygenase in higher plants.
