Jasmonates are important regulators in plant responses to biotic and abiotic stresses as well as in development. Wasternack and Hause update their 2007 Annals of Botany review and summarize new data from the last 5 years, with emphasis on metabolites of jasmonates, jasmonate perception and signalling, cross-talk with other plant hormones, and jasmonate signalling in response to herbivores and pathogens, in symbiotic interactions, in flower development, in root growth and in light perception. They detail recent breakthroughs in the identification of JASMONATE ZIM DOMAIN (JAZ) proteins, and consider them together with interactors such as transcription factors and co-repressors in the context of cross-talk.
