The glycosides are a large and remarkably varied group of plant products which occur universally in the higher plants and have also been found in some lower forms. On hydrolysis by acid, or a specific hydrolytic enzyme(β-glycosidase) these substances yield a saccharide, the glycone, and in most cases a hydroxyl product, or, in the case of the mustard oil glycosides, an isothiocyanate, the aglycone. In many cases the glycone is β-d-glucose or a saccharide containing β-d-glucose such as gentiobiose 6-glucose-β-d-glucopyranoside, which is the glycone of the cyanogenetic glycoside amygdalin, and primverose, 6-d-glucose-β-d-xyloside, which is the glycone of ruberythric acid (XI), the naturally occurring glycoside of the dihydroxyanthraquinone alizarin, and other plant glycosides.
