General description

Salicylic acid (SA) is a phenolic compound produced in plants.

Application

Salicylic acid has been used:
  • to study its effects on glandular trichomes in Artemisia annua
  • to study its effects on DNA methylation in Taraxacum alatum andTaraxacum hemicyclum
  • to study its effects on parasite epidemics in Lolium arundinaceum

Packaging

500 g in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Salicylic acid (SA) plays a major role in the growth and development of plants. It also plays a role in endogenous signaling for plant disease resistance. SA is also involved in mediating thermogenesis and symptom development.

DNA methylation is one of the mechanisms underlying epigenetic modifications. DNA methylations can be environmentally induced and such induced modifications can at times be transmitted to successive generations. However, it remains speculative how common such environmentally induced transgenerational DNA methylation
