Carotenogenesis during tuber development and storage in potato.
Germplasm of Solanum tuberosum and Solanum phureja exhibit a wide (over 20-fold) variation in tuber carotenoid content. The levels of carotenoids during tuber development and storage were compared inExpand

Glucosinolate responses of swede, kale, forage and oilseed rape to root damage by turnip root fly (Delia floralis) larvae
Two genotypes of kale (Brassica oleracea L), two of rape (one forage and one winter oilseed type, B napus L) and two of swede (B napus L) grown in a glasshouse were inoculated with turnip root flyExpand

Identification of glucosinolates on the leaf surface of plants from the Cruciferae and other closely related species.
Leaf-surface extracts prepared from 18 non-cultivated (wild) plant species, derived from the Capparidaceae, Cruciferae, Resedaceae and Tropaeolaceae were ranked for their ability to stimulateExpand

Effects of genotype, environment, and postharvest storage on the total ascorbate content of potato (Solanum tuberosum) tubers.
The total ascorbate content of potato tubers from 33 Solanum tuberosum genotypes grown at three geographically diverse sites in Europe in each of two years was determined immediately postharvest andExpand

Effects of season and postharvest storage on the carotenoid content of Solanum phureja potato tubers.
The total carotenoid content was determined of tubers from 38 Solanum phureja lines grown in field plots over 3 years. The results indicated a significant difference between years, but the rankingExpand

Varietal susceptibility of potatoes to wireworm herbivory
1 Wireworms, the soil dwelling larvae of click beetles, Agriotes spp., have recently become a more prevalent pest of potatoes. The present study investigated whether potato varieties showed variableExpand

Effect of bruising on the total glycoalkaloid and chlorogenic acid content of potato (Solanum tuberosum) tubers of five cultivars
Tubers from five potato cultivars were selected on the basis of their low, intermediate or high rates of glycoalkaloid synthesis in response to stresses such as light or cold storage temperatures.Expand

Variation in the oil content and fatty acid composition of field beans (Vicia faba) and peas (Pisum spp.)
Oil content has been found to range from 1.2–1.9% in a wide range of diverse field bean (Vicia faba) cultivars, populations and selections and from 1.4–2.8% in a narrower range of pea cultivars. TheExpand

Effects of Glucosinolates and Flavonoids on Colonization of the Roots of Brassica napus byAzorhizobium caulinodans ORS571
ABSTRACT Plants of Brassica napus were assessed quantitatively for their susceptibility to lateral root crack colonization byAzorhizobium caulinodans ORS571(pXLGD4) (a rhizobial strain carrying theExpand

Potato metabolomics by GC–MS: what are the limiting factors?
Metabolic profiling methods are not ideally suited to the simultaneous analysis of all metabolite classes within a biological sample and must be optimized for maximum applicability. Several factorsExpand
