Tryptamine was identified as a stress compound in UV-irradiated barley leaves. Its induction was also observed to occur upon the inoculation of plant pathogenic fungi. In the interaction between barley and powdery mildew fungus, the induction was related to the degree of resistance and spore germination was inhibited by tryptamine in vitro, suggesting that it acts as a defense substance.
