2 13.24 Steps in the pathway for conversion of linolenic acid (18:3) to jasmonic acid (Part 2) Plant defense strategies Constitutive defenses: toxic chemicals synthesized and stored Induced defenses: toxic chemicals synthesized in response to a damage 13.25 Proposed systemin signaling pathway Insect damage in plants induces JA responses. Chemicals found in saliva function as elicitors. These elicitors induces JA synthesis at the site of cell damage. JA is transported long distance to other tissues and induce defense related genes
