Arabidopsis Compound Description

Knapsack ID C00000126
PubChem ID 9576416
Compound name 1-Methoxy-3-indolylmethyl glucosinolate
Common Name Neoglucobrassicin
Formula C17H22N2O10S2
SCC Type Tryptophan derived glucosinolates; Indolylmethyl glucosinolates
SCC Function Both colitis and tumor number were drastically reduced after feeding the GSL-rich brassica vegetable diet. GSLs can act anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic but both effects depend on the specific amount and pattern of GSLs within a vegetable (Lippmann et al. (2014).
