Stavaroside K, veratramine and cevine induce hemolysis, whereas 7 other pregnane stavarosides and 8 Veratrum alkaloids are not hemolytic. On the other hand, erythrocytes pretreated or incubated with low concentrations of stavarosides D-F or with the 8 other Veratrum alkaloids were resistant to hemolysis induced by authentic saponin, stavaroside K, cevine or veratramine. Veratridine, zygadenine and angeloylzygadenine (the known Na-Channel-Gate toxins) revealed the most potent reduction of… CONTINUE READING
