Schematic Version 7. The biosynthetic intermediates (outlined in black) and biologically active members (outlined in blue) of the JA family of signaling lipids. JA is outlined in red. This updated figure includes jasmonoyl-L-tryptophan (JA-Trp), which was added in January 2010.

Schematic Version 6. The biosynthetic intermediates and active members of the jasmonate family of signaling lipids are shown. Jasmonate (JA) is shown in outlined in red. This updated figure includes 12-hydroxy-jasmonoyl-L-isoleucine (12HOJAIle) and 12-carboxyjasmonoyl-L-isoleucine (12HOOCJA-I), which were added in May 2009.

Schematic Version 5. The biosynthetic intermediates and active members of the jasmonate family of signaling lipids are shown. Jasmonate (JA) is shown in outlined in red. This updated figure includes Arabidopside A and OPDA-GSH, which were added in July 2006.

Schematic Version 4. The biosynthetic intermediates and active members of the jasmonate family of signaling lipids are shown. Jasmonate (JA) is shown in dark yellow. This updated figure includes several new molecules derived from JA: 12-SJA, 1-β-glc-JA, 1-β-glc2-JA, 6-OHJA, and 11-OHJA. These additional lipids were the Jasmonate Biochemical Pathway in August 2005.

Schematic Version 3. The biosynthetic intermediates and active members of the jasmonate family of signaling lipids are shown. Jasmonate (JA) is outlined in red. This updated figure includes 9,10-dihydrojasmonate (9,10-dJA), which was added to the Jasmonate Biochemical Pathway in 2004.

Schematic Version 2. The biosynthetic intermediates and active members of the jasmonate family of signaling lipids are shown. Jasmonate (JA) is highlighted in yellow. This updated figure includes 12-hydroxyjasmonate (12-OHJA), which was added to the Jasmonate Biochemical Pathway in 2003.

Schematic Version 1. The biosynthetic intermediates and active members of the jasmonate family of signaling lipids are shown. Jasmonate (JA) is highlighted in yellow.

Erratum

A previous version of this figure and the figures in the Connections Maps incorrectly showed a COOH group attached to the cJ molecule. The version 1 and version 2 figures above, as well all figures associated with components in the pathway, are correct as of 31 May 2002.
