  • The apical half of leaves were wounded 90 min prior to harvest and extraction of the entire leaf. The content of dnOPDA, OPDA, and JA was measured. Values are in ng⋅g−1 fwt ± SE (n = 4 for all measurements except those with unwounded fad5 plants, where n = 5). The detection limit was approximately 1 ng⋅g−1 fwt for all compounds.
