At2g23560: MES7 (METHYL ESTERASE 7)
Encodes a protein shown to have carboxylesterase activity, methyl salicylate esterase activity, and methyl IAA esterase activity in vitro. This protein does not act on methyl JA, MeGA4, or MEGA9 in vitro. MES7 appears to be involved in MeSA hydrolysis in planta. Expression of MES7 can restore systemic acquired resistance in SAR-deficient tobacco plants.
