Biological function
The native S. nigrum gene LOX3 (S. nigrum lipoxygenase 3) codes for a jasmonic acid biosynthesis enzyme.

Jasmonates are known plant signalling substances. They play an important role in development processes (maturation of pollen, fruit and seed) and also in plant reactions to biotic and abiotic stress factors, including the production of antibodies for the direct and indirect defence of plants against chewing insects.

Constitutive reduction of the lipoxygenase 3 contents can influence one of the insect-induced plant defence cascades, it can alter the defence response of the plant to abiotic and other biotic stress factors, and it can affect the development processes of the plant in general.
Related trait(s) or use(s) in biotechnology
  • Resistance to chewing insects
