A water-soluble germination- and growth-inhibitor present in plants of Brassica genus was studied. Aqueous eluates from chromatograms of methanolic extracts of Savoy cabbage, cabbage and Brussels’ sprouts leaves, and of Brussels’ sprouts roots, inhibited the growth of wheat; the chromatographic behaviour of this inhibitor was similar to that of the thioglycoside glucobrassicin (GLUBR). GLUBRat 10-3m, and the supposed product of its enzymatic degradation, 3-indolylacetonitrile (IAN) at 10-4m… Expand
