Data on the synthesis of jasmonic acid (JA) in plants, the impact of stress factors and signaling mediators on its content were summarized. Participants of the processes of JA signal reception and transduction into genetic apparatus were considered. Particular attention was paid to the role of JIN1/MYC2 transcript factor in the implementation of physiological effects of JA. Jasmonate-dependent adaptive responses of plants, in particular induction of antioxidant system by JA, were characterized. Nature of JA interaction with other stress phytohormones like abscisic and salicylic acid, ethylene was briefly described.
