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 were observed in maize roots exposed to 10−8 M of the inhibitor for 7 days. The compound lowered contents of stigma-, campe-, and sitosterol, while obtusifoliol and 14α-methylergast-8-en-3β-ol accumulated. Label from [14C]mevalonic acid mainly accumulated in obtusifoliol when tobacco cell suspension… Expand
