Glycosides which we have called “caulosides” A, B, C, D, and E have been isolated from the perennial relict plantCaulophyllum robustum.

The aglycone of caulosides A, C, D, and E is hederagenin. It has been found that the carbohydrate chains of caulosides D and E contain glucose, arabinose, and rhamnose; those of C, glucose and arabinose; and those of A and B, arabinose. Caulosides D and E contain carbohydrate chains attached by an O-acyl glycoside bond.
