Phytohormones, among them jasmonic acid (JA) and its derivatives, are known to play a role in responses of plants to various stresses, but also in developmental processes. Prominent examples for both are given by the plant interactions with beneficial or pathogenic microorganisms and the flower development, respectively. The functional analysis of JA in these processes is the main focus of our research and is performed by biochemical, reverse genetic, and cell biological approaches. The topics presented within the talk are (1) interactions of plant roots (Medicago truncatula) with soil-born microorganisms (arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, rhizobia, pathogens), (2) the role of JA in flower development of tomato, and (3) the visualization of JA on tissue and cell-specific level.
