Natural isothiocyanate like allyl isothiocyanates
are used as flavors, aroma and fungicides .
Abbreviations AITC: Allyl isothiocyanate
MRP1: Multidrug resistance-associated protein 1 ARE: Antioxidant response elements RT-PCR: Real-time polymerase chain reaction.
Among the existing options, allyl isothiocyanate
(AITc), the main component of the mustard essential oil, can act as a fumigant.
The antimicrobial activity of allyl isothiocyanate
(AIT) from mustard oil, AIT liberated from 5% to 10% (w/w) non-deheated (NDH) hot mustard flour, and AIT following microencapsulation was examined against a 3- to 6-log cfu per g, 5-strain cocktail of E.coli O157:H7 in ground or chopped fresh beef.
Sprouts contain allyl isothiocyanate
which gives them their distinctive smell and taste.
The immunomodulatory activities of allyl isothiocyanate
(AITC) and phenyl isothiocyanate (PITC) have already been reported from our laboratory (Manesh and Kuttan, 2003).
When ground, the seeds, trigger a chemical reaction that produces allyl isothiocyanate
, a phytonutrient known for its anticancer properties.
