Biofumigation using a wild Brassica oleracea accession with high glucosinolate content affects beneficial soil invertebrates

Aims This study explores the biofumigation effects of glucosinolate (GSL) containing Brassica oleracea plant material on beneficial, non-target soil organisms, and aims to relate those effects to differences in GSL profiles. Methods Leaf material of purple sprouting broccoli ‘Santee’, Savoy cabbage ‘Wintessa’, and the wild B. oleracea accession Winspit was analysed for GSL ...

Chemoprevention of 2-amino-3-methylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoline (IQ)-induced colonic and hepatic preneoplastic lesions in the F344 rat by cruciferous vegetables administered simultaneously with the carcinogen

The aim of this study was to investigate the chemopreventive effects of widely consumed cruciferous vegetables, namely Brussels sprouts and red cabbage towards 2-amino-3-methylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoline (IQ)-induced preneoplastic lesions [liver glutathione-S-transferase placental positive (GST-P+) foci and colonic aberrant crypt foci (ACF)]. Male F344 rats were treated with IQ (100 ...
