Abstract

Abstract Allylglucosinolate is converted to 1-cyano-2,3-epithiopropane by interaction of the thioglucoside glucohydrolase and epithiospecifier protein from several genera: Brassica, Crambe, Armoracia and Sinapis. The interactions occur across genetic lines, indicating non-specific requirements for epithiospecifier protein and thioglucoside glucohydrolase.
