VICIANOSE FROM THE ROOT OF GEUM URBANUM
15 January 2009 (online)
Free vicianose was found to occur in the rhizodermis and primary bark of the roots of Geum urbanum during the whole year. Vicianose was never detected in the conductive tissue as well as in callus culture prepared from this tissue. The highest content of vicianose during vegetation was determined in the flowering stage. Vicianose was isolated as a white powder, which changes to syrup consistency during a few weeks.
