Possible antitumor promoters in Spinacia oleracea (spinach) and comparison of their contents among cultivars.

Abstract

Spinach leaves were found to contain two potent antitumor promoters as detected by the activity against tumor promoter-induced Epstein-Barr virus activation. The active components were identified as 1-O-alpha-linolenoyl-2-O-(7Z,10Z,13Z)-hexadecatrienoyl-3-O-beta-D-galactopyranosyl-sn-glycerol and 1,2-di-O-alpha-linolenoyl-3-O-beta-D-galactopyranosyl-sn… (More)
