A reproducible and robust enzymatic desulfation reaction utilizing Sulfatase enzyme from Helix pomatia type H1, was developed and used in conjunction with an optimized HPLC-UV/ESI-MS/MS method developed in this study, for complete separation and identification of desulfated glucosinolates, extracted from 89 AGDH mapping population derived from a cross between rapid cycling Brassica oleracea lines; A12DH and GD33DH with high resolution for quantification measurements were used. In addition, we have demonstrated the first use of two internal standards during the preparation of the plant material for analysis, which significantly improved the reproducibility of the quantitative measurements. The quantitative data were then used for the identification of significant Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) for individual glucosi-nolates and for key points in their biosynthesis, revealed for the presence of major gene effect near the top of B. oleracea linkage group 9 (LG9), associated with aliphatic glucosinolate synthesis. Moreover, a number of novel QTLs were also identified, which control the synthesis of glucosinolates.
