  • Twenty-two sterols were identified by capillary gas chromatography and capillary gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy inCucurbita maxima grown under green-house conditions. Both whole plants and individual tissues (leaves, stems, roots, cotyledons, flowers) were analyzed at weekly intervals during the 12-week development of the plant. In whole plants, sterol accumulation parallels plant growth except for a period in the mid-life cycle where there is a reduction in the amount of sterol… CONTINUE READING
