Abstract:

Furanocoumarins (FCs) are plant defense compounds that function as toxins against pathogens, insects, and other plant pests (Berenbaum 2003; Widmer 2006). Insects exposed to linear FCs suffer decreased larval weight, extended generation time, and increased mortality (Diawara et al. 1993). High doses of some FCs are also toxic to humans; among the maladies caused in humans by FCs are “celery picker’s itch” and “bartender’s itch,” caused by contact with FC-containing celery plants or oil of lime peels, respectively. Also, FCs can cause temporary or even permanent blindness if introduced into the eyes. Some FCs are also carcinogenic and teratogenic; that is, they can cause cancer and birth defects, respectively (Diawara et al. 1993; Gou et al. 2000; Pan et al. 2004). © 2018 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC CRC Press is an imprint of Taylor & Francis Group, an Informa business.
