Acyl glucuronide reactivity as it pertains to acyl migration and hydrolysis to the aglycone is a measure of the stability of the 1-O-b-acyl glucuronide. This is a required first step in the glycation mechanism described above. Acyl glucuronide reactivity as it pertains to the ability to form protein adducts relates directly to the chemical reactivity of the acyl glucuronide. The differentiating point is the major mechanism at play. If the transacylation mechanism is the major mechanism then the ...

and a nonsugar (aglycone) on hydrolysis. They are produced naturally in plants as a result of the chemical combination of diverse hydroxy compounds with various sugars. Glycosides occur more widely and more abundantly in plants than alkaloids. Toxicity varies from nontoxic to extremely toxic. The amount and type of glycosides present in many plants vary greatly due to both endogenous ...

the aglycone is gly-cosidically bound at the anomeric center (C1) to form an intact acetal. As a result of the ring structures of the monosaccharide (pyranose or furanose form), this C center is asymmetric; the two possible diastereomeric G. are distinguished as αand β-anomeric G. (for definition of the configuration cf. D- Glucose). For an example of the β-glycosidic linkage, see figure under cellulose; the figure under starch shows an α-glycosidic linkage, see also figure in Lit.1.
