abstract

  • In Mimosa pudica L. both L- and DL-lysine serve as specific precursors of the -γ-pyridone nucleus of mimosine. Succinic acid is also incorporated into the nucleus. Glycerol and glyceric acid enter the side chain of mimosine. An improved method for the isolation of mimosine from M. pudica is described.
