EC 1.14.13.228     Relevance: 100%
Accepted name: jasmonic acid 12-hydroxylase
Reaction: (–)-jasmonate + NADPH + H+ + O2 = trans-12-hydroxyjasmonate + NADP+ + H2O
Glossary: (–)-jasmonate = {(1R,2R)-3-oxo-2-[(2Z)-pent-2-en-1-yl]cyclopentyl}acetate
trans-12-hydroxyjasmonate = {(1R,2R)-2-[(2Z)-5-hydroxypent-2-en-1-yl]-3-oxocyclopentyl}acetate
Other name(s): ABM (gene name)
Systematic name: jasmonate,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase (12-hydroxylating)
Comments: Although believed to occur in plants, the enzyme has so far been characterized only from the rice blast fungus, Magnaporthe oryzae. The fungus strategically deploys the enzyme to hydroxylate and inactivate endogenous jasmonate to evade the jasmonate-based innate immunity in rice plants.

EC 6.3.2.52     Relevance: 90.4%
Accepted name: jasmonoyl—L-amino acid ligase
Reaction: ATP + jasmonate + an L-amino acid = AMP + diphosphate + a jasmonoyl-L-amino acid
Other name(s): JAR1 (gene name); JAR4 (gene name); JAR6 (gene name); jasmonoyl—L-amino acid synthetase
Systematic name: jasmonate:L-amino acid ligase
Comments: Two jasmonoyl-L-amino acid synthetases have been described from Nicotiana attenuata [3] and one from Arabidopsis thaliana [1]. The N. attenuata enzymes generate jasmonoyl-L-isoleucine, jasmonoyl-L-leucine, and jasmonoyl-L-valine. The enzyme from A. thaliana could catalyse the addition of many different amino acids to jasmonate in vitro [1,4,5]. While the abundant form of jasmonate in plants is (–)-jasmonate, the active form of jasmonoyl-L-isoleucine is (+)-7-iso-jasmonoyl-L-isoleucine.

EC 2.1.1.141     Relevance: 87%
Accepted name: jasmonate O-methyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + jasmonate = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + methyl jasmonate
Glossary: jasmonic acid = {(1R,2R)-3-oxo-2-[(Z)pent-2-enyl]cyclopent-2-enyl}acetic acid
Other name(s): jasmonic acid carboxyl methyltransferase
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:jasmonate O-methyltransferase
Comments: 9,10-Dihydrojasmonic acid is a poor substrate for the enzyme. The enzyme does not convert 12-oxo-phytodienoic acid (a precursor of jasmonic acid), salicylic acid, benzoic acid, linolenic acid or cinnamic acid into their corresponding methyl esters. Enzyme activity is inhibited by the presence of divalent cations, e.g., Ca2+, Cu2+, Mg2+ and Zn2+.

Accepted name: chlorophyllase
Reaction: chlorophyll + H2O = phytol + chlorophyllide
For diagram of chlorophyll catabolism, click here
Other name(s): CLH; Chlase
Systematic name: chlorophyll chlorophyllidohydrolase
Comments: Chlorophyllase has been found in higher plants, diatoms, and in the green algae Chlorella [3]. This enzyme forms part of the chlorophyll degradation pathway and is thought to take part in de-greening processes such as fruit ripening, leaf senescence and flowering, as well as in the turnover and homeostasis of chlorophyll [4]. This enzyme acts preferentially on chlorophyll a but will also accept chlorophyll b and pheophytins as substrates [5]. Ethylene and methyl jasmonate, which are known to accelerate senescence in many species, can enhance the activity of the hormone-inducible form of this enzyme [5].

Comments: Acts on a number of unsaturated fatty-acid hydroperoxides, forming the corresponding allene oxides. The product of the above reaction is unstable and is acted upon by EC 5.3.99.6, allene-oxide cyclase, to form the cyclopentenone derivative (15Z)-12-oxophyto-10,15-dienoate (OPDA), which is the first cyclic and biologically active metabolite in the jasmonate biosynthesis pathway [3]. The enzyme from many plants belongs to the CYP-74 family of P-450 monooxygenases [4].

Isolated from the plants Thuja plicata (western red cedar) [1], Linum perenne (perennial flax) [2] and Arabidopsis thaliana (thale cress) [3].

Accepted name: monoterpene ε-lactone hydrolase
Reaction: (1) isoprop(en)ylmethyloxepan-2-one + H2O = 6-hydroxyisoprop(en)ylmethylhexanoate (general reaction)
(2) 4-isopropenyl-7-methyloxepan-2-one + H2O = 6-hydroxy-3-isopropenylheptanoate
(3) 7-isopropyl-4-methyloxepan-2-one + H2O = 6-hydroxy-3,7-dimethyloctanoate

Other name(s): MLH
Systematic name: isoprop(en)ylmethyloxepan-2-one lactonohydrolase
Comments: The enzyme catalyses the ring opening of ε-lactones which are formed during degradation of dihydrocarveol by the Gram-positive bacterium Rhodococcus erythropolis DCL14. The enzyme also acts on ethyl caproate, indicating that it is an esterase with a preference for lactones (internal cyclic esters). The enzyme is not stereoselective.

Other name(s): 1-hydroxy-2-oxolimonene 1,2-monooxygenase; dihydrocarvone 1,2-monooxygenase; MMKMO
Systematic name: (–)-menthone,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase
Comments: A flavoprotein (FAD). This Baeyer-Villiger monooxygenase enzyme from the Gram-positive bacterium Rhodococcus erythropolis DCL14 has wide substrate specificity, catalysing the lactonization of a large number of monocyclic monoterpene ketones and substituted cyclohexanones [2]. Both (1R,4S)- and (1S,4R)-1-hydroxymenth-8-en-2-one are metabolized, with the lactone product spontaneously rearranging to form 3-isopropenyl-6-oxoheptanoate [1].
