Glucosinolates are amino acid-derived secondary metabolites with diverse biological activities dependent on chemical modifications of the side chain. Five flavin-monooxygenases FMO(GS-OX1-5) have recently been identified as aliphatic glucosinolate side chain modification enzymes in Arabidopsis thaliana that catalyse the generation of methylsulphinylalkyl glucosinolates, which can be hydrolysed to products with distinctive benefits for human health and plant defence. Though the localization of… CONTINUE READING
