The Lipoxygenase Pathway

  • Brady A. Vick
  • Don C. Zimmerman

Abstract

After more than fifty years since its discovery, the study of the lipoxygenase pathway remains one of the most engaging, yet elusive areas of plant lipid research. Since 1932 when Andre and Hou (1) first reported on the existence of oxidizing enzymes which alter soybean oil, Chemical Abstracts has cited more than 1000 research articles under the subject of plant lipoxygenase. Despite the abundance of research effort on this topic, reviews (2–6) over the decades have been forced to report that the physiological role of lipoxygenase in plants is unknown.
