Small-intestinal transfer mechanism of prunasin, the primary metabolite of the cyanogenic glycoside
Both plants had more steroids and flavonoids except for the two phytochemicals, anthraquinones and cyanogenic glycosides
which were absent.
The role of cyanogenic glycoside
in incompatibility between peach scions and almond rootstocks.
But shoots should be properly processed as they contain high level of toxic cyanogenic glycosides
Quantification of cyanogenic glycosides
in seedlings of three Macadamia (Proteaceae) species.
Under normal physiological conditions, tissues of cyanophoric plants do not contain free cyanide; rather they contain cyanogenic glycosides
, which upon hydrolysis by endogenous glycosidase yield free cyanide which could be toxic to the consumer [8, 9].
Whole-bowel irrigation does offer an opportunity to completely cleanse the gastrointestinal tract of poisonous plant matter and should be reserved for patients who have ingested significant amounts of poisonous plant matter that will release toxins slowly over time in the gastrointestinal tract, such as apple or apricot kernels containing cyanogenic glycosides
or oleander seeds containing cardiotoxic glycosides.
The research has shown that the concentration of cyanogenic glycosides
, which break down to release toxic hydrogen cyanide, increased in plants in elevated CO2.
included hydrocyanic acid (HCH), found in peach and cherry pits.
Comparative Processing of Cyanogenic Glycosides
and a Novel Cyanide Inhibitory Enzyme in Heliconius Butterflies (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Heliconiinae).
However, the seeds also contain cyanogenic glycosides
such as trypsin inhibitory factor and cyanhidric acid, resulting in antinutritional effects.
