In Brassica napus, glucosinolates are transported from all parts of the plant into the embryo during seed development. In this study we describe the uptake of the alkenyl glucosinolate sinigrin by microspore derived embryos from high and low glucosinolate genotypes. Microspore derived embryos develop completely isolated from maternal tissues unlike zygotic embryos, which contains glucosinolates transported into the embryo synthesised in the vegetative tissues. The sinigrin in the culture medium… CONTINUE READING
