The aim of this study was to understand the stimulation of plants’ natural defenses in general and by methyl jasmonate. It is thus right that we followed the influence of the latter on the metabolism of phenolic compounds of cotton leaves (Gossypium hirsutum L. Cv. W471B). It is clear that the phenol content, which is 48.16 mg/g of dry matter at 2.5 mM of MeJA spray, increases to reach its maximum at 5 mM, i.e., 64.33 mg/g of dry matter. PAL is the enzyme that participates the most in the biosynthesis of total phenols following the treatment of cotton leaves with 5 mM MeJA. On the other hand, the activity of polyphenoloxidase (PPO), which was initially 2.83 ΔDO /g DM in the untreated control leaves, fell to 1.81 ΔDO /g DM in the leaves treated with 5 mM MeJA, i.e., a 36.04% decrease in phenol degradation activity. Peroxidase (POD) activity also decreased from 2.5 ΔDO /g DM in control leaves to 0.25 ΔDO /g DM in the leaves sprayed with 5 mM MeJA, i.e., a decrease in phenol degradation activity of 90%. TAL is, therefore, the enzyme that participates more in the phenol degradation activity following the application of 5mM MeJA on cotton leaves.
