The natural occurrence of L-pipecolic acid and conversion of lysine to L-pipecolic acid in Lemna paucicostata 151 were demonstrated definitively by GC-MS. The strong flower-inducing activity of L-pipecolic acid has already been demonstrated. Thus, the present study indicates that the effect of lysine on flowering is mediated by L-pipecolic acid.
