A fungitoxic substance has been isolated from extracts from the white skins of tulip bulbs, from the fleshy bulb scales and from the flower pistils. The compound was identified as α‐methylenebutyrolactone. 
Antibacterial effects of S-(-)-tulipalin B isolated from Spiraea thunbergii Sieb. on Escherichia coli, a major food borne pathogenic microorganism
The crude ethanol extract of the leaves of Spiraea thunbergii Sieb. (Rosaceae) showed antibacterial activity against a food borne pathogen, Escherichia coli. Bioactivity-guided separation led to the
A method for determination of tulipalin A and B concentrations in crude extracts of tulip tissues
TLDR
A method for determining the concentration of the fungitoxic lactones tulipalin A and B in crude extracts of various parts of the tulip is described, which can be measured by UV spectrophotometry.
A Novel Lactone-Forming Carboxylesterase: Molecular Identification of a Tuliposide A-Converting Enzyme in Tulip1[W]
TLDR
To the knowledge, TgTCEA is the first identified member of the lactone-forming carboxylesterases, specifically catalyzing intramolecular transesterification in the tulip defensive strategy.
Environmentally benign process for the preparation of antimicrobial α-methylene-β-hydroxy-γ-butyrolactone (tulipalin B) from tulip biomass
TLDR
An environmentally benign and facile process for the preparation of PaB using tulip biomass materials based on one-step enzyme reaction catalyzed by TCE without the use of petroleum-derived solvents is described.
Molecular identification of tuliposide B-converting enzyme: a lactone-forming carboxylesterase from the pollen of tulip.
TLDR
Results indicate that mature TgTCEB1 is specifically localized in plastids of pollen grains, but not in the intracellular spaces of pollen grain, as previously reported.
Molecular diversity of tuliposide B-converting enzyme in tulip (Tulipa gesneriana): identification of the third isozyme with a distinct expression profile
TLDR
Identification of TgTCEB-L explains the PosB-converting activity detected in tissues where T gTCEB1 and Tg TCEB-R transcripts could not be detected, indicating that tulip subtilizes the three TGTCEB isozymes depending on the tissue.
Function and application of a non-ester-hydrolyzing carboxylesterase discovered in tulip

TLDR
This review describes the biochemical and physiological aspects of tulipalin biogenesis, and the diverse functions of plant carboxylesterases in the α/β-hydrolase fold superfamily.
Molecular diversity of tuliposide B-converting enzyme in tulip (Tulipa gesneriana): identification of the root-specific isozyme
TLDR
Tissue-specific isozymes are involved in the conversion of 6-tuliposide B, a major secondary metabolite in tulip, to antibacterial tulipalin B, which encodes a TCEB.
Molecular Diversity of Tuliposide A-Converting Enzyme in the Tulip
Tuliposide A-converting enzyme (TCEA) catalyzes the conversion of 6-tuliposide A to its lactonized aglycon, tulipalin A, in the tulip (Tulipa gesneriana). The TgTCEA gene, isolated previously from
Phytoalexins and other natural products as factors in plant disease resistance

TLDR
The detection and characterisation of phytoalexins and other related natural products, the elucidation of their biosynthetic pathways and where appropriate their antifungal mechanisms, and the development of these substances or synthetic analogues for use in crop protection provides a new and exciting field of plant pathology which without doubt will be greatly expanded in the years that lie ahead.

TLDR
In systemic tests against cucumber scab, PTS and a number of its substitution products showed considerable activity and the position and nature of substituents in thiosemicarbazide seem to be of great inftuence on growth-inhibition.
