Metabolite Identification
Common Name(R)-Higenamine
Description(R)-Higenamine, also known as norcoclaurine, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as benzylisoquinolines. These are organic compounds containing an isoquinoline to which a benzyl group is attached (R)-Higenamine is a sweet, fruity, and milky tasting compound (R)-Higenamine has been detected, but not quantified in, custard apples (Annona reticulata) and opium poppies (Papaver somniferum). This could make (R)-higenamine a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Based on a literature review very few articles have been published on (R)-Higenamine.
