4-Hydroxymandelonitrile glucosides, dhurrin in Suckleya suckleyana and taxiphyllin in Girgensohnia oppositiflora (Chenopodiaceae)


Phytochemistry 33(4): 847-850
4-Hydroxymandelonitrile glucosides, dhurrin in Suckleya suckleyana and taxiphyllin in Girgensohnia oppositiflora (Chenopodiaceae)
The cyanogenic glucosides dhurrin [2S-beta-D-glucopyranosyloxy-2-(4-hydroxy)-phenylacetonitri le] and taxiphyllin [2R-beta-D-glucopyranosyloxy-2-(4-hydroxy)-phenylacetonitri le] have been isolated as the only cyanogenic glycosides from all parts of Suckleya suckleyana (dhurrin) and a herbarium specimen of Girgensohnia oppositiflora (taxiphyllin) of the Chenopodiaceae. The leaves of S. suckleyana contain the highest concentration of dhurrin followed by fruits, stems and roots.
