Sund, Putala, and Little (J. Agr. Food Chem., -8, 210, 1960) found that certain purine precursors, purines, and their ribosides, as well as riboflavin and its coenzymes, reduced both growth and chlorophyll formation toxicities of aminotriazole for tomato plants. These authors suggest that the observed effect of riboflavin is related to the metabolic relationship of purines as precursors of riboflavin. On the basis of structural analogy, aminotriazole appears to be an aza-inhibitor for the
