Effect of tridemorph and fenpropimorph on sterol composition in fenugreek
Results indicated that these compounds inhibited the cycloeucalenol-obtusifolioliol-isomerase (COI), in roots as well as in cell suspensions, these inhibitors led to a weak accumulation of Δ8-sterols indicating that Δ8 → Δ7 isomerase was also affected.
Occurrence of diosgenin in Borderea pyrenaica, an endemic dioscoreaceae from the pyrénées
Effects of tetcyclacis on growth and on sterol and sapogenin content in fenugreek
Tetcyclacis was shown to be an ineffective inhibitor of the S-adenosyl-l-methionine (Adomet): cycloartenol-C24-methyltransferase (EC 2.1.41) in fenugreek microsomes indicating that cholesterol accumulation does not result from the inhibition of the sterol side chain-alkylating enzyme.
Effect of diniconazole on sterol composition of roots and cell suspension cultures of fenugreek
Results point to the early reduction-methylation bifurcation at the Δ 24 double bond of sterol precursors which are converted with few interconnecting routes to the end-product sterols, i.e. cholesterol or phytosterols.
