Monoterpenes induce the heat shock response in Arabidopsis

Hara M, Yamauchi N, Sumita Y Zeitschrift für Naturforschung. C, Journal of Biosciences ABSTRACT: Monoterpenes are common constituents of essential oils produced by plants. Although it has been reported that monoterpenes enhanced the heat tolerance of plants, the mechanism has not been elucidated. Here, we tested whether 13 monoterpenes promoted the heat shock response (HSR) in Arabidopsis…. Read more »
