Alpha-dioxygenase that catalyzes the primary oxygenation of fatty acids into oxylipins. Mediates a protection against oxidative stress and cell death, probably by generating some lipid-derived molecules. Promotes local and systemic plant defense in a salicylic acid (SA)-dependent manner, including the establishment of systemic acquired resistance (SAR) in response to incompatible interaction. Involved in a negative regulation of abscisic acid (ABA)-mediated signaling pathway.
Also known as Alpha-dioxygenase 1 (Alpha DOX1) (Fatty acid dioxygenase AlphaDOX1) (Pathogen-induced oxygenase) (Plant alpha dioxygenase 1). Encodes an alpha-dioxygenase involved in protection against oxidative stress and cell death. Induced in response to Salicylic acid and oxidative stress. Independent of NPR1 in induction by salicylic acid.
Also known as Alpha-dioxygenase 2 (Alpha DOX2) (Fatty acid dioxygenase AlphaDOX2). Encodes an alpha dioxygenase. Recombinant protein catalyzes the conversion of a wide range of fatty acids into 2(R)-hydroperoxy derivatives.
