Description

DL-phosphinothricin is a freely soluble broad spectrum herbicide also known as glufosinate ammonium.

    CAS Number

    77182-82-2

    Molecular Formula

    C5H15N2O4P

    Molecular Weight

    198.16

    Mechanism of Action

    DL-phosphinothricin interferes with the synthesis of the amino acid, glutamine.Toxicity of DL-phosphinothricin arises from glutamine shortages which can lead to an inability to detoxify ammonia and suppress photosynthesis activity.

    Storage Conditions

    2-8 °C

    Tariff Code

    2922.49.8000

Applications

    Plant Biology Applications

    DL-Phosphinothricin is a broad spectrum herbicide used to inhibit growth of unwanted plants. As an herbicide, DL-Phosphinothricin can be used as selection marker as well since resistance can be transferred by genetic transformation. McPhee and co-workers (2004) used glufosinate ammonium for selecting successfully transformed Pea plantlets.
