MetaCyc Compound: phophinothricin tripeptide

Abbrev Name: bialaphos

Synonyms: PTT, bialaphos, phosphinothricylalanylalanine, 2-amino-4-(methylphosphino)butyrylalanylalanine, bilanafos, (2S)-2-amino-4-(hydroxymethylphosphinyl)butanoyl-L-alanyl-L-alanine

phophinothricin tripeptide (also known as Bialaphos), a product of some strains of Streptomyces, is a unique tripeptide composed of two L-alanine residues and one L-phophinothricin having a C-P-C bond. phophinothricin tripeptide is a non-selective foliar-applied herbicide and has strong herbicidal activities against a wide range of monocotyledonous and dicotyledonous weeds. The active ingredient is phosphinothricin, which inhibits glutamine synthetase, resulting in ammonia accumulation and inhibition of photosynsesis in plants.
