The Isolation of Phytoalexins from Germinating Seeds of Cicer arietinum, Vigna sinensis, Arachis hypogaea, and Other Plants. N. T. Keen, Associate Professor, Department of Plant Pathology, University of California, Riverside, California 92502; Phytopathology 65:91-92. DOI: 10.1094/Phyto-65-91.

Germinating seeds of several plant species challenged with the native microflora produced the same phytoalexins as other plant tissues. Processing moderate amounts of incubated seeds allowed the isolation of 30- to 100-mg amounts of the phytoalexins.
