This species also contains coumarin, simple coumarins, and a series of monoterpenes and alkaloids derived from anthranilic acid (Aliotta and Cafiero, 1999). 25 David S. Seigler Lignans and lignin Four phytotoxic lignans from cenizo, Leucophyllum frutescens, are responsible for the phytotoxic activity exhibited by this species (Rimando et al. 1999). Three of these compounds, diayangambin, epiyangambin, and diasesartemin, inhibited all phases of onion root cell division. 26 Basic pathways for the origin of allelopathic compounds PHENYLPROPANOIDS WITH ACETATE CHAIN EXTENSION A series of phenylpropanoids with extension by three malonate groups may be condensed by two different mechanisms.

2004). The biosynthetic process leading to formation of (-)-catechin is not known. The dimer propelargonidin and the corresponding monomer afzelachin inhibit growth of rice seedlings and may be responsible for limited growth of peach seedlings (Ohigashi et al. 1982). Secretion of propelargonidin may explain, in part, the problem with replanting peaches, Prunus persica (Ohigashi et al. 1982). Interestingly, (+)catechin and procyanidins promote growth of callus cultures of other Prunus species (Feucht and Treutter, 1999).

1999). Alfalfa roots often contain as much as 4-5% saponins. These saponins consist of mono-, bi-, and tridesmosides and have from 2-7 sugar moieties attached. These saponins are responsible for many of the antinutritional aspects of alfalfa, and may also be responsible for the autotoxic effects and allelopathy attributed to this species (Oleszek et al. 1999). When cotton is grown in the same fields following alfalfa crops, the yields are considerably reduced. In other studies, alfalfa root saponins have been shown to be toxic to cotton.
