Glucosinolates Analysis Service
Glucosinolates are important secondary metabolites in cruciferous vegetables. They are found in a variety of edible plants such as cabbage, Brussels sprouts, watercress, horseradish, spiny bergamot, and radish. These natural chemicals may help plants resist pests and diseases and give cruciferous vegetables their distinctive flavor.
Glucosinolates are readily hydrolyzed by the action of endogenous mustard enzymes to produce degradation products. The formation of these products is influenced by pH and certain ions and has different physiological functions. Allyl isothiocyanate is a component that produces the characteristic aromatic odor of cruciferous vegetables such as mustard and cabbage. Indole glucosinolates, such as 3-indole methyl glucosinolate, produce compounds such as indole 3-methanol and indole-3-acetonitrile by enzymatic digestion. These compounds are biologically active and can inhibit the growth of microorganisms and have deterrent effects on certain insects and herbivores. 4-Methylthiooxybutyl glucosinolate degradation product, radish sulfur, is the most powerful enzyme inducer found so far and can inactivate oncogenes.
Creative Proteomics offers metabolomics services based on LC-MS technology, which enables qualitative and quantitative analysis of glucosinolates.
