Ten yearling steers weighing 270-360 kg died acutely after eating early seed pod stage Lupinus argenteus (silvery lupine) containing high levels of piperidine alkaloids, including ammodendrine and N-methylammodendrine. Reduced availability of Quality feed from range moderately depleted of Quality grasses appeared a major factor in causing the cattle to graze lupine. Proximate analysis of whole plant, seed pods and seed showed high levels of crude protein ranging from 16.4 to 48% for whole plant…

The Protective Effect of Chickpea and Lupine variety on rats with fatty liver
: Effect of Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) and lupin (Lupinus spp.) on fatty liver, (56) rats were divided into two main groups. The first group (7 rats) fed on basal diet, as a control negative. The
Lupine-Induced Crooked Calf Disease: The Last 20 Years
Summary Many of the incidences report only calves that are destroyed. In our experience, there are substantial numbers of affected calves with minor to moderate leg deformities that eventu-ally
Effect of balady and imported Chickpea on Blood Glucose and lipid profile of Diabetes Rats
Chickpea seeds were reported to have been employed for treating hypertension and diabetes mellitus for over the past 2500 years. The present study aimed to compare the effect of balady and imported
Alkaloids in edible lupin seeds
The toxicity data on inherent natural toxicants in lupin seeds, especially quinolizidin alkaloids, are reviewed, and recommendations to better ensure the safe use of these seeds in foods are given.
Biomedical applications of poisonous plant research.
Advances in biomedical applications of the toxins of Veratrum californicum (western false hellebore), Lupinus species (lupines), and Astragalus and Oxytropis species (locoweeds) are illustrated.


Cattle grazing white locoweed: influence of grazing pressure and palatability associated with phenological growth stage.
By restricting access at the immature pod growth stage and insuring adequate forage is available at other times, cattle consumption of white locoweed on this site should be minimized.
Observations of Lupinus sulphureus-induced "crooked calf disease".
After a review of breeding records, grazing patterns and growth stage of plants, it was determined cattle probably ingested L. sulphureus in the seed pod stage during critical fetal developmental periods of gestation and was likely the cause of the birth defects.

Lupine-Induced Crooked Calf Disease and a Management Method to Reduce Incidence
Management programs that prevent pregnant cows from eating highly teratogenic early growth or seed-stage lupine plants between gestation days 40 and 70 will reduce crooked calf disease incidence.
Piperidine alkaloid composition and relation to crooked calf disease-inducing potential of Lupinus formosus.
The alkaloid composition and teratogenicity of Lupinus formosus, reported by others to be low in quinolizidines but rich in the type of piperidine alkaloids that it is speculated would be teratogenic, was investigated.
Teratogenic and fetotoxic effects of two piperidine alkaloid-containing lupines (L. formosus and L. arbustus) in cows.
To determine if N-acetyl hystrine is a potential teratogen and define the narrow cleft palate induction period in cows, pregnant cows were fed at equivalent ammodendrine doses from days 40-50 of gestation.
Comparison of cleft palate induction by Nicotiana glauca in goats and sheep.
It is postulate that an alkaloid-induced reduction in fetal movement during the period of normal palate closure is the cause of the cleft palate and multiple flexion contractures.
