Purification and characterization of dihydrodipicolinate synthase from pea.
Dihydrodipicolinate synthase (EC, the first enzyme unique to lysine biosynthesis in bacteria and higher plants, has been purified to homogeneity from etiolated pea (Pisum sativum) seedlingsExpand
Inhibition of Ergosterol Biosynthesis by Etaconazole in Ustilago maydis
The triazole fungicide etaconazole (CGA64 251) interferes with the ergosterol biosynthesis in Ustilago maydis by inhibiting the C-14 demethylation of the sterol nucleus. During the late log growthExpand
Metabolism of the Aryloxyphenoxypropanoate Herbicide, CGA 184927, in Wheat, Barley and Maize: Differential Effects of the Safener, CGA 185072
Abstract The influence of the safener, CGA 185072 (5-chloro-8-quinolinoxy-acetic acid-1-methylhexyl-ester), on the metabolism of the aryloxyphenoxypropanoate herbicide, CGA 184927Expand
Effects of triazine herbicides on the physiology of plants
Soon after the discovery of the potent herbicidal activity of certain classes of N-alkylated diamino-s-triazines, it was recognized that they act through interference with photosynthesis.Expand
Hydroxylation of primisulfuron by an inducible cytochrome P450-dependent monooxygenase system from maize
Abstract Microsomes were prepared from etiolated maize seedlings and incubated with [14C]primisulfuron (2-[3-(4,6-bis(difluoromethoxy)-pyrimidin-2-yl)-ureidosulfonyl]-benzoic acid methylester). TwoExpand
Hydroxycinnamoyl amides in stem explants from flowering and non-flowering Nicotiana tabacum
Flower formation in stem explants was chosen as an experimental system for the study of the function of hydroxycinnamoyl amides (HCAs) in plants. The explants, derived from flowering andExpand
A novel imidazole carboxylic acid ester is a herbicide inhibiting 14α-methyl-demethylation in plant sterol biosynthesis
Abstract CGA 201029/R 69020 [methyl 1-(2,2-dimethylindan-1-yl)imidazole-5-carboxylate], a novel imidazole carbonic acid ester, inhibits sterol biosynthesis in plants. Changes in sterol pattern wereExpand
Effects of the safeners CGA 154281, oxabetrinil and fenclorim on uptake and degradation of metolachlor in corn (Zea mays L.) seedlings
Summary. The influence of three crop safeners on the uptake and degradation of 14C-metolachlor was investigated in two corn varieties. Following application of herbicide and safener together toExpand
