Development of isothiocyanate-enriched broccoli, and its enhanced ability to induce phase 2 detoxification enzymes in mammalian cells

Abstract

Broccoli florets contain low levels of 3-methylsuphinylpropyl and 4-methylsulphinylbutyl glucosinolates. Following tissue disruption, these glucosinolates are hydrolysed to the corresponding isothiocyanates (ITCs), which have been associated with anticarcinogenic activity through a number of physiological mechanisms including the induction of phase II… (More)
