Apart from the bioactive constituents discussed above, two compounds; Apiole and Gingerglycolipid B were identified from other classes of metabolites which might responsible for antifungal effect.
Dill apiole and camphor which were the key components in the previous studies were not found in the present investigation.
For example, Drosophila bioassays of parsnips unexpectedly revealed a new botanical insecticidal and synergistic natural product identified as myristicin (Lichtenstein and Casida 1963) that is related to dill apiole and parsley apiole, which were later recognized as acting the same way (de Almeida et al.
