The most typical alkaloids for this botanical family are l-lysine (Figure 16) derived alkaloids, such as lupinine, sparteine, lupanine, angustifoline, epilupinine, anagyrine and so on. Lysine alkaloids occur in many species belonging to the legume family. ). ) contain swainsonine and castanospermine. 119 have detected 46 compounds from 6 Mexican lupin species (Lupinus rotundiflorus, Lupinus montanus, Lupinus mexicanus, Lupinus elegans, Lupinus madrensis, Lupinus exaltatus).
