Knapsack ID C00007864
PubChem ID 5486194
Compound name (2S)-2-Hydroxy 3-butenyl glucosinolate
Common Name Epiprogoitrin
Formula C11H19NO10S2
SCC Type Methionine-derived glucosinolates; Hydroxy alkenyl glucosinolates
SCC Function Antiproliferative activity found for Isothiocyanate and nitriles derived from epi-progoitrin demonstrated that in general nitriles are considerably less potent than the corresponding isothiocyanates in inhibiting cancer cell growth (Nastruzzi et al 2000).
