The siliques and seeds of Arabidopsis thaliana accumulate a series of glucosinolates containing an alkyl side chain of varying length with a terminal benzoate ester function. The biosynthesis of these unusual nitrogen- and sulfur-containing natural products was investigated by feeding isotopically-labeled precursors to detached flowering stems. Glucosinolates were extracted, purified and analyzed by tandem mass spectrometry. Phenylalanine and benzoic acid were incorporated into the benzoate… CONTINUE READING
