Cyanogenesis in Aralia spinosa (Araliaceae)

The detection of triglochinin adds to the knowledge of toxicological properties and the dereplication of U(H)PLC/MS² data provides a comprehensive phytochemical profile of A. spinosa.

Content and distribution of prunasin in Perilla frutescens

Perilla frutescens var. crispa (Lamiaceae) is an annual plant that is the botanical origin of the natural medicine “Soyo” listed in the Japanese Pharmacopoeia and is also used as a fragrant

Unique and highly specific cyanogenic glycoside localisation in stigmatic cells and pollen in the genus Lomatia (Proteaceae).

Specific, high CNglyc concentrations in transient cells challenge the predictions of defence theories, and highlight the importance of fine-scale metabolite visualisation, and the need for further investigation into the ecological and metabolic roles of CNglycs in floral tissues.

Cyanogenesis in Macadamia and Direct Analysis of Hydrogen Cyanide in Macadamia Flowers, Leaves, Husks, and Nuts Using Selected Ion Flow Tube–Mass Spectrometry

Hydrolysis of cyanogenic glucosides followed a first-order reaction with respect to HCN production where cyanogenesis is principally induced by pH changes initiating enzymatic hydrolysis rather than thermally induced reactions.

Diverse organ-specific localisation of a chemical defence, cyanogenic glycosides, in flowers of eleven species of Proteaceae

Floral chemical defence strategies remain under-investigated, despite the significance of flowers to plant fitness. We used cyanogenic glycosides (CNglycs)—constitutive secondary metabolites that

Chemical Diversity of Plant Cyanogenic Glycosides: An Overview of Reported Natural Products

This review will serve as a first reference for researchers trying to find new cyanogenic glycosides and highlights some gaps in the knowledge about the exact structures of already described compounds.

Mobilization and utilization of cyanogenic glycosides: the linustatin pathway.

The presence of this pathway demonstrates that cyanogenic glucosides, typical secondary plant products serve in the metabolism of developing plants as N-storage compounds and do not exclusively exhibit protective functions due to their repellent effect.

Cyanogenesis in tropical Prunus turneriana: characterisation, variation and response to low light.

This study characterised three aspects of cyanogenesis in the late successional tropical rainforest species Prunus turneriana, and suggested that such a strategy may be advantageous for seedlings of tree species that can only reach a reproductive stage following the creation of a canopy gap.

Cyanogenic glycosides from the rare Australian endemic rainforest tree Clerodendrum grayi (Lamiaceae).

Temporal and spatial variation in cyanogenic glycosides in Eucalyptus cladocalyx.

Although some of the changes in cyanogenic glycoside concentration in young leaf tips may have been driven by changes in leaf nitrogen, there was a significant decrease in the proportion of nitrogen allocated to cyanogenic Glycosides in young leaves during the summer, coinciding with the peak flowering period.

An analysis of the costs and benefits of the cyanogenic system in Trifolium repens L.

The effect of the cyanogenic glucosides linamarin and lotaustralin and their hydrolyzing enzyme linamarase was studied in a B2 generation segregating for the genes Ac and Li and the energy content of the difference in flower head production far exceeded the metabolic cost of cyanoglucoside production in Acac plants.

Frequency of cyanogenesis in tropical rainforests of far north Queensland, Australia.

This study expands the limited knowledge of the frequency of cyanogenesis in natural plant communities, includes novel reports of cyanogenogenesis among a range of taxa and characterizes patterns in intra-plant and intra-population variation of cyanogensis.

Utilization of Amygdalin during Seedling Development of Prunus serotina

During the first 3 weeks following imbibition, cotyledonary amygdalin levels declined by more than 80%, but free hydrogen cyanide was not released to the atmosphere, and declines in the levels of AH, PH, and MDL were found within protein bodies but were later detected in vacuoles derived from these organelles.

Influence of water stress on cyanogenic capacity in Eucalyptus cladocalyx.

This is the first record of acyanogenic E. cladocalyx from areas of South Australia that differ markedly in rainfall, and it concludes that most of the variation in cyanogenic capacity is due to genetic differences between individuals, while the remaining variation isdue to differences in leaf N.
