Chemical defenses of crucifers: elicitation and metabolism of phytoalexins and indole-3-acetonitrile in brown mustard and turnip.
The metabolism of the cruciferous phytoalexins brassinin and cyclobrassinin, and the related compounds indole-3-carboxaldehyde, glucobrassicin, and indole-3-acetaldoxime was investigated in variousExpand

Assembling the biosynthetic puzzle of crucifer metabolites: indole-3-acetaldoxime is incorporated efficiently into phytoalexins but glucobrassicin is not.
First biosynthetic studies utilizing tetradeuterated precursors indicate that the indole glucosinolate glucobrassicin is not a precursor of the phytoalexin brassinin, and that indole-3-acetaldoximeExpand
