Potassium β-D-glucopyranosyl 11-hydroxyjasmonate (1) was isolated as a leaf-closing substance of a nyctinastic plant, Albizzia julibrissin Durazz. Compound 1 was quite effective for the leaf-closing of A. julibrissin at 2x10-5 M, and was proved to be a trans-isomer of β-D-glucopyranosyl tuberonic acid previously isolated from potato as a tuber-inducing stimulus.
