Fig1: Allium ursinum cysteine-sulfoxides

Mentions: Ramson belongs to a methiin/alliin-type Allium species, which means it contains mainly a mixture of (+)-S-methyl-l-cysteine-sulfoxide (methiin) and (+)-S-allyl-l-cysteine-sulfoxide = (+)-S-2-propenyl-l-cysteine-sulfoxide (alliin) (Schmitt et al. 2002; Kubec et al. 2000). However, isoalliin—(+)-S-(1-propenyl)-l-cysteine-sulfoxide and propiin—(+)-S-propyl-l-cysteine-sulfoxide are present as well (Fig. 1) (Schmitt et al. 2002). Also, ethiin (S-ethyl-cysteine-sulfoxide) was reported in the sample of fresh leaves collected in April in Czech Republic (Kubec et al. 2000).Fig. 1
