Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Linamarin is a cyanogenic glucoside found in the leaves and roots of plants such as cassava, lima beans, and flax. Upon exposure to enzymes and gut flora in the human intestine, linamarin and its methylated relative lotaustralin can decompose to the toxic chemical hydrogen cyanide

Packaging

Bottomless glass bottle. Contents are inside inserted fused cone.

Application

Linamarin, a cyanogenic glucose substrate, is used together with β-glucosidase, linamarase, to produce cyanide in vivo as a potential anticancer strategy.
