General Information

Reference
evolution
the enzyme belongs to SABATH family, a class of O-methyltransferases and N-methyltransferases
malfunction
a knockout mutant fails to accumulate methyl salicylate following pathogen infection. These plants also fail to accumulate salicylate or its glucoside in the uninoculated leaves and do not develop systemic acquired resistance. However, the mutant exhibits normal levels of effector-triggered immunity and pathogen-associated molecular pattern-triggered immunity to Pseudomonas syringae and Hyaloperonospora arabidopsidis
metabolism
the enzyme is critical for methyl salicylate synthesis
physiological function
both methyl salicylate and methyl jasmonate are essential for systemic resistance against Tobacco mosaic virus, possibly acting as the initiating signals for systemic resistance, irreplaceable roles of methyl salicylate and methyl jasmonate in systemic resistance response
physiological function
enzyme benzoic acid/salicylic acid carboxyl methyltransferase is enzyme responsible for catalyzing benzoic acid and salicylic acid to methyl benzoate and methyl salicylate, respectively, and is involved in floral scent production from lily
physiological function
enzyme benzoic acid/salicylic acid carboxyl methyltransferase is enzyme responsible for catalyzing salicylic acid and benzoic acid via salicylic acid to methyl salicylate, and is involved in plant defense against pathogens. The phenylalanine ammonia-lyase, not the isochorismate pathway, is the primary route for salicylic acid production in tomato
physiological function
isoform SAM1 plays a role in soybean defence against the soybean cyst nematode Heterodera glycines. Enzyme overexpression also affects the expression of selected genes involved in salicylic acid biosynthesis and salicylic acid signal transduction
physiological function
isoform SAMT1 may play a dual regulation role of distinct signaling in Atropa belladonna plants, namely the signaling pathway of the SA-dependent response, and also a jasmonic acid dependent response in local regions
physiological function
overexpression of isoform BSMT1 compromises systemic acquired resistance and pathogen-associated molecular pattern-triggered immunity but not effector-triggered immunity
physiological function
the obligate biotrophic pathogen Plasmodiophora brassicae causes clubroot disease in Arabidopsis thaliana, which is characterized by large root galls. Salicylic acid production is a defence response in plants, and its methyl ester is involved in systemic signalling. Plasmodiophora brassicae suppresses the plant defence reactions via its methyltransferase, PbBSMT with homology to plant methyltransferases. The PbBSMT gene is maximally transcribed when salicylic acid production is highest, and enzyme PbBSMT can methylate salicylic acid, benzoic and anthranilic acids. Plasmodiophora brassicae secretes enzyme PbBSMT into the host cell, where it methylates the defence signal salicylate. The resulting methyl salicylate fails to upregulate plant defence reactions and is transmitted to leaves, where it is emitted or converted back to salicylate
