no evidence for the induction of brown algal chemical defense by the phytohormones jasmonic acid and methyl jasmonate.induced chemical defense reactions are widespread in marine brown algae. despite the evidence that the biosynthesis of defense metabolites can be up-regulated upon herbivory, we do not know how this regulation of biosynthetic pathways to secondary metabolites is achieved in brown algae. in higher plants, the phytohormone jasmonic acid (ja) is crucial for the mediation of induced chemical defenses, and several findings of this metabolite from marine sources have been reported. we tested the hypot ...200819020937
genetic diversity of ectocarpus (ectocarpales, phaeophyceae) in peru and northern chile, the area of origin of the genome-sequenced strain.• the origin of the ectocarpus strain used for genome sequencing (the 'genome strain') was peru, where no ectocarpus had been reported previously. to study the genetic diversity in the region and to increase the number of individuals from this area available for genetic experiments, 119 new ectocarpus strains were isolated from eight localities along the 3000  km of coastline from central peru to central chile. • internal transcribed spacer 1 (its1) genotyping revealed nine different genotypes, ...201020524993
