    Wenn Raupen oder andere Insekten an glucosinolathaltigen Pflanzen wie Brokkoli fressen, kommen die Glucosinolate in Kontakt mit dem Enzym Myrosinase. Dieses setzt die Senföle frei, die dann die hungrigen Insekten vertreiben. Grafik: Dietmar Geiger

    Broccoli and other plants use mustard oils to ward off pests. These natural substances are also thought to have a preventive effect on cancer. A German-Danish team is now presenting new findings about mustard oils in plant science in “Nature” – with interesting prospects for agriculture.
