CAS Number: [1689-84-5] for bromoxynil aglycone
Bromoxynil derivative which can be used for selective release in GUS-positive plant systems, in a tissue specific manner. Additional ester groups help with cell permeation of this herbicide derivative.
Bromoxynil is a nitrile herbicide that is used for post-emergent control of annual broadleaf weeds. It is especially effective in the control of weeds in cereal, corn, sorghum, onions, flax and mint. The compound works by inhibiting photosynthesis in the target plants. This beta-glucuronide derivative lacks activity until acted upon by intracellular beta-glucuronidase (cloned with the GUS marker gene).
