Biology and biochemistry of glucosinolates.
Glucosinolates are sulfur-rich, anionic natural products that upon hydrolysis by endogenous thioglucosidases called myrosinases produce several different products (e.g., isothiocyanates,Expand

Diversity and distribution of floral scent
A list of 1719 chemical compounds identified from headspace samples of floral scent is presented. The list has been compiled from some 270 published papers, including analyses of 991 species ofExpand

Variation of glucosinolate accumulation among different organs and developmental stages of Arabidopsis thaliana.
The glucosinolate content of various organs of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh., Columbia (Col-0) ecotype, was analyzed at different stages during its life cycle. SignificantExpand

Biosynthesis and Emission of Terpenoid Volatiles from Arabidopsis Flowers Article, publication date, and citation information can be found at www.plantcell.org/cgi/doi/10.1105/tpc.007989.
Arabidopsis is believed to be mostly self-pollinated, although several lines of genetic and morphological evidence indicate that insect-mediated outcrossing occurs with at least a low frequency inExpand

Recruitment of entomopathogenic nematodes by insect-damaged maize roots
Plants under attack by arthropod herbivores often emit volatile compounds from their leaves that attract natural enemies of the herbivores. Here we report the first identification of anExpand

An Arabidopsis thaliana gene for methylsalicylate biosynthesis, identified by a biochemical genomics approach, has a role in defense.
Emission of methylsalicylate (MeSA), and occasionally of methylbenzoate (MeBA), from Arabidopsis thaliana leaves was detected following the application of some forms of both biotic and abioticExpand

Genetic control of natural variation in Arabidopsis glucosinolate accumulation.
Glucosinolates are biologically active secondary metabolites of the Brassicaceae and related plant families that influence plant/insect interactions. Specific glucosinolates can act as feedingExpand

A unified mechanism of action for volatile isoprenoids in plant abiotic stress.
The sessile nature of plants has resulted in the evolution of an extraordinarily diverse suite of protective mechanisms against biotic and abiotic stresses. Though volatile isoprenoids are known toExpand

The Arabidopsis Epithiospecifier Protein Promotes the Hydrolysis of Glucosinolates to Nitriles and Influences Trichoplusia ni Herbivory Article, publication date, and citation information can be
Glucosinolates are anionic thioglucosides that have become one of the most frequently studied groups of defensive metabolites in plants. When tissue damage occurs, the thioglucoside linkage isExpand

Monoterpene and sesquiterpene synthases and the origin of terpene skeletal diversity in plants.
The multitude of terpene carbon skeletons in plants is formed by enzymes known as terpene synthases. This review covers the monoterpene and sesquiterpene synthases presenting an up-to-date list ofExpand
