Acetolactate synthase (ALS), also known as acetohydroxyacid synthase (AHAS) is an important enzyme in plants. Without this enzyme the plant cannot produce specific amino acids (isoleucine, leucine and valine) thereby preventing protein formation.  This effectively prevents growth at the growing points of the plant, namely the apical meristem and root tip.  This enzyme is only found in plants – making the have a very low toxicity for animals and humans.
