Solutions of glucobrassicin (3-indolylmethyl glucosinolate) purified from foliage and sinigrin (allyl glucosinolate) elicited oviposition by the cabbage butterfly,Pieris rapae, at threshold concentrations as low as 10−6 M. At higher concentrations, glucobrassicin elicited a faster oviposition rate and a stronger visual response to the substrate through associative learning. Solutions of 10−5 M glucobrassicin and 10−2 M sinigrin stimulated equally. Their enzymic hydrolysis products failed to… CONTINUE READING
