Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract Garlic Mustard (Alliaria petiolata [M. B.] Cav. et Gr.) with reference to its fatty acid composition is a typical member of cruciferous plants (Brassicaceae). Analyses of 59 German and 8 Norwegian provenances resulted in an average fractional portion of 44% and 34%, resp., for erucic acid. Thus, this wild species is considered to be one having a comparably high amount of this fatty acid. Indications that erucic acid is amounting to more than 75%, seem to be founded in a misinterpretation of an older publication.
