Methyl ester of jasmonic acid (Me-JA) influences the induced resistance of potato tubers to late blight caused byPhytophthora infestans. Treatment of potato tuber disk surfaces with Me-JA solution or exposure to an atmosphere containing Me-JA vapors (10−6–10−5 M) increased the rate of rishitin biosynthesis induced by arachidonic acid orP. infestans. Methyl jasmonate increased the sensitivity of potato tissue to arachidonic acid. As a result, in the presence of Me-JA, the protective properties of arachidonic acid were observed at lower concentrations than in the absence of Me-JA. In addition, Me-JA reduced the adverse effects of lipoxygenase inhibitors (salicylhydroxamic acid and esculetin) on the induced resistance of potato tubers to late blight. Therefore, the synergistic interaction of Me-JA and biogenic elicitors can be regarded as part of a mechanism of potato defense against diseases.
