Metabolite Identification
Common NameAloeemodin
DescriptionAloeemodin, also known as rhabarberone, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as anthraquinones. These are organic compounds containing either anthracene-9,10-quinone, 1,4-anthraquinone, or 1,2-anthraquinone. Thus, aloeemodin is considered to be an aromatic polyketide lipid molecule. Aloeemodin is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral. Outside of the human body, Aloeemodin has been detected, but not quantified in, green vegetables. This could make aloeemodin a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
