Abstract

The profile of primary dioxygenation products of arachidonic acid catalyzed by lipoxygenase isolated from hairy root cultures of Solanum tuberosum treated with a fungal elicitor was compared to that obtained for the enzyme from potato tubers. 11-Hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid (11-HPETE) was the most abundant dioxygenation product formed followed by 8- and 5-HPETEs in the decreasing order of abundance. In contrast, 5-HPETE is the predominant oxidation product of lipoxygenase from potato tubers. Differences in the defense requirements of storage tuber as compared to roots may be the basis of the differences in regiospecificity demonstrated in this work.
