Allene Oxide Synthase is a potent anti-oxidant enzyme used to remove lipid hydroperoxides in various biological samples. It may also be used to study stress induced gene expression in plants . Product A6481 is from Parthenium argentatumand is supplied as a solution in phosphate buffered saline.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Allene oxide synthase converts lipoxygenase derived fatty acid hydroperoxides to unstable allene epoxides. In plants, allene oxide is a precursor of jasmonic acid, which is important for growth regulation .
