(±)-Jasmonic Acid methyl ester can suppress proliferation and induce apoptosis.

Jasmonates, a group of plant stress hormones that naturally occur in plants following exposure to certain types of stresses, includ pathogen and herbivore attacks.

In vitro: It was found that (±)-Jasmonic Acid methyl ester, when applied to surfaces of tomato plants, could induce the synthesis of defensive proteinase inhibitor proteins. The presence of (±)-Jasmonic Acid methyl ester in the chamber atmosphere containing plants resulted in the accumulation of proteinase inhibitors in leaves of all studied three species [1]. Another study found that (±)-Jasmonic Acid methyl ester could induce death in each of the studied cell lines, while other plant stress hormones could not affect normal human lymphocytes. In addition, (±)-Jasmonic Acid methyl ester caused apoptotic death, as measured by flow cytometric DNA profile, characteristic nuclear morphology, and caspase-3 activity elevation [2].

In vivo: Animal study showed that mice bearing EL-4 lymphoma and treated with (±)-Jasmonic Acid methyl ester survived for significantly longer periods of time than untreated mice, suggesting that plant stress hormones might potentially be a new class of anti-cancer drugs [2].

Clinical trial: So far, no clinical study has been conducted.
