Uptake of Seeds Secondary Metabolites by Virola surinamensis Seedlings.

Kato MJ, Yoshida M, Lopes NP, da Silva DB, Cavalheiro AJ - Int J Anal Chem (2012)

Bottom Line: The major secondary metabolites and fatty acids occurring in the seeds of Virola surinamensis were monitored by GC-MS during germination and seedling development.The role as carbon source for seedling development was indicated considering that both classes of compounds were similarly consumed in the seeds and that no selective consumption of compounds could be detected.

fig2: GC profile of secondary metabolites before (a) and after (b) germination of V. surinamensis seeds.

Mentions: The secondary metabolites in both groups of seeds of V. surinamensis were analyzed by GC-MS. The chromatographic profile observed for both groups exhibited the predominance of galbulin (2), galbacin (4a), and veraguensin (5b) as the major compounds (Figure 2). After statistical analyses, no significant variation was observed in the relative content of monitored compounds, except to compound 1 (P < 0.05) (Table 2).
