Cyanogenic glucosides: the biosynthetic pathway and the enzyme system involved.


In vitro studies with a microsomal system obtained from etiolated sorghum seedlings have indicated a biosynthetic pathway for cyanogenic glucosides involving amino acids, N-hydroxyamino acids, aldoximes, nitriles and cyanohydrins. NADPH is an essential cofactor. Simultaneous measurements of tyrosine metabolism and oxygen consumption show that three… (More)
