Metabolite Identification
Common Name(±)-Sphaerosin
Description(±)-Sphaerosin, also known as laxifloran, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as 3'-o-methylated isoflavonoids. These are isoflavonoids with methoxy groups attached to the C3' atom of the isoflavonoid backbone. Isoflavonoids are natural products derived from 3-phenylchromen-4-one. Thus, (±)-sphaerosin is considered to be a flavonoid lipid molecule (±)-Sphaerosin is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral. Outside of the human body, (±)-Sphaerosin has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as common beans, green beans, hyacinth beans, pulses, and yellow wax beans. This could make (±)-sphaerosin a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
