Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz is an oilseed crop whose oil is used as biofuel and the meal as animal feed. While the seed composition is widely documented, little is known about variations in the concentration of some compounds during seed development of camelina. The aim of this study was to characterize changes in the content of glucosinolates, sinapine, sinapic acid and flavonols (quercetin and koempferol) at different stages of seed maturation. Glucosinolates are accumulated in camelina seed in the first 4 weeks after pollination, while the other substances were transiently accumulated during development and may play a role in seed development.

Keywords :
