Abstract

We report the synthesis of the novel fluorescence-labeled jasmonate glycoside 2 based on β-d-glucopyranosyl 12-hydroxyjasmonate 1, which is a leaf-closing substance of Albizzia julibrissin Durazz. The fluorescence study using 2 revealed that the target cell for 1 is a motor cell. Probe 2 bound to the motor cells of two plants belonging to genus Albizzia. This result suggested that a receptor for 2, which is common among genus Albizzia would be involved in the nyctinastic leaf movement.
