Bacteria species known to induce the biosynthesis of crucifer-specific phytoalexins have earlier been shown to be associated with Delia flies. Eleven crucifer-specific phytoalexins and related synthetic compounds were applied on surrogate paper leaves and offered to cabbage root flies in oviposition assays. Since three of these compounds (methoxybrassinin, cyclobrassinin, brassitin) proved to be significantly stimulatory whereas the remaining metabolites had no effect, the reaction of the fly… CONTINUE READING
