A tissue homogenate method to prepare gram-scale Allium thiosulfinates and their disulfide conjugates with cysteine and glutathione.

The health benefits of Allium vegetables are widely attributed to the enzyme-derived organosulfur compounds called thiosulfinates (TS). However, the lack of a suitable method to prepare TS in good yields has hampered the evaluation of their biological activities. This paper describe a simple enzymatic method using Allium tissue homogenates as a reaction… CONTINUE READING
