Characteristic of cruciferous plants is the synthesis of nitrogen- and sulfur-rich compounds, such as glucosinolates and indole alkaloids. The intact glucosinolates have limited biological activity, but give rise to an array of bio-active breakdown products when hydrolysed by endogenous β-thioglucosidases (myrosinases) upon tissue disruption. Both glucosinolates and indole alkaloids constitute an important part of the defence of plants against herbivores and pathogens, with the difference that… CONTINUE READING
