Abstract

The brassinosteroid-like active principles from immature seeds of Zea mays were purified and identified as castasterone, teasterone, 28-norcastasterone and 6-deoxocastasterone by GC-MS analysis. Our work is probably the first report that showed the presence of brassinosteroids in Zea mays seeds.
