Glucosinolates are secondary plant metabolites that occur naturally in Brassicaceae, a plant family that has given rise to important crops such as oilseeds ( Brassica napus ) and cabbages ( Brassica oleracea ). Based on the amino acid origin of

Broccoli is receiving increased attention because its florets are rich in many chemoprotective phytochemicals such as glucosinolates (GSs). Epidemiological studies have shown that diets rich in cruciferous (Brassicaceae) vegetables, especially

accumulation of several classes of secondary compounds (as reviewed by Memelink et al., 2001 ). Glucosinolates (GSLs) are a class of secondary metabolites present in members of the Brassicaceae family. GSLs are constitutively produced thioglycosidic

( Talalay and Fahey, 2001 ; Wargovich, 2000 ). A group of secondary compounds, called glucosinolates, is widely present in crucifers. On cellular damage or disruption, hydrolysis of glucosinolates, through the enzyme myrosinase, produces isothiocyanates

. Brassicaceous plants are also known for their production of the S-containing secondary plant metabolites, glucosinolates. Glucosinolate concentrations in plants can significantly alter an animal's health. High-glucosinolate diets initiate such undesirable

Glucosinolates are thioglucosides found in brassica vegetables that when hydrolyzed at the S-glucose bond create a suite of products involved in plant defense, flavor, and human health. Glucosinolates react with myrosinase [thioglucoside

Glucosinolates (GS) are important sulfur-containing secondary metabolites present in a number of plant species, including Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh ( Halkier and Du, 1997 ). More than 100 types of GS have been reported in plant species with
