The destruxin B detoxification pathway present in Sinapis alba is also present in three unrelated species, Camelina sativa, Capsella bursa-pastoris, and Eruca sativa, suggesting a conservation of… Expand
Phytoalexins from the Crucifer Rutabaga: Structures, Syntheses, Biosyntheses, and Antifungal Activity.
Phytoalexins from the crucifer rutabaga: structures, syntheses, biosyntheses, and antifungal activity.
Phytoalexins are inducible chemical defenses produced de novo by plants in response to diverse forms of stress, including microbial attack. Our search for phytoalexins from economically important… Expand
Probing crucial metabolic pathways in fungal pathogens of crucifers: biotransformation of indole-3-acetaldoxime, 4-hydroxyphenylacetaldoxime, and their metabolites.
Indole-3-acetaldoxime is an intermediate of crucial importance in the biosynthesis of diverse plant secondary metabolites of Cruciferae. The metabolism of indole-3-acetaldoxime to indole-3-acetic… Expand
An overview on neuroprotective effects of isothiocyanates for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.
The discovery of new natural compounds with pharmacological properties is a field of interest widely growing, especially for the management of neurodegenerative diseases. As no pharmacological… Expand
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-acetaldoxime… Expand

A simple and inexpensive method for enantiomeric discrimination of the phytoalexins spirobrassinin (1), 1-methoxyspirobrassinin (2) and synthetic analog 1-methylspirobrassinin (6) using the chiral… Expand
The biosynthesis of crucifer phytoalexins: unprecedented incorporation of a 1-methoxyindolyl precursor.
The first biosynthetic studies revealing that 1-methoxy-3-indolylacetaldehyde oxime is an early precursor of 1-methoxyindole containing phytoalexins.
Novel indole-type glucosinolates from woad (Isatis tinctoria L.)
Abstract Four novel indole-type glucosinolates ( 1 – 1 ′ and 2 – 2 ′ ), together with six other known glucosinolates, were isolated from the seeds of Isatis tinctoria L. and their structures… Expand
