Displaying ZIM Family from Maize
Jasmonates (JAs) are essential hormones for plant defense and development. Jasmonate ZIM-domain proteins are repressors of JA signaling, Most members of the JAZ gene family are highly expressed in response to mechanical wounding. JAZ proteins are targeted by the E3-ubiquitin ligase SCF(COI1) for proteasome degradation in response to JA. MYC2, a positive regulator of JA-dependent responses, has been identified as a target of JAZ repressors (PMID:18223147,PMID:18653378).
