There is a universe of compounds in plants.     I call this a library.   The compounds themselves are found in volumes. That is, multiple variations of the same core compound.   A great example of this evolutionary diversity, are the ginsenosides of ginseng.   Ginseng has many variants of almost identical ginsenosides.  They all the have same polysaccaride core with minimal alterations in branch structure. They are however,…
Glucosinolates are naturally occurring chemicals found in cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, sprouts kale and mustard seeds).   The term glucosinolates refer to a library of more than one hundred sulfur-containing compounds (glycosides).   Upon hydrolysis, (addition of water) these glycosides yield isothiocyanates, thiocyanates, and indoles. Thiocyanates and isothiocyanates block tumor production and inhibit tumor growth in a variety of body sites. Presumably, this occurs due to plant compound's inhibition of the…
