15 L-ornithine and L-nicotinic acids are precursors of some alkaloids in the Nightshade family. ), native to Australia and New Caledonia, also contain these compounds. The Jimsweed genus is especially rich in alkaloids. Fifty-three tropane alkaloids are reported from only one species, Datura innoxia, growing in Morocco. ) occurring in Europe and North America, as well as in the large area from northern Africa to central Asia. ) is a good example of this alkaloid-containing genus, but many more genera have the ability to yield these alkaloids.
11). The genus Stephania produces tetrandrine and stephanine, while the genus Curare (Chondrodendron) yields curare and tubocurarine. All are known to be medicinal alkaloids. More than 150 alkaloids have been isolated from plants of the Stephania genus. Camacho47 reported on many of alkaloids found in Stephania dinklagei, a climbing shrub of the deciduous forest of Africa. They were methylliriodendronine, 2-O,N-dimetylliriodendronine, liriodenine, dicentronine, corydine, and aloe-emodin. These alkaloids display strong biological impact with antiprotozal activity.
Many L-ornithine-derived alkaloids are found in this plant family, from which three species, the aforementioned E. coca, Erythroxylum truxilense, and Erythroxylum novagranatense, contain cocaine, ecgonine, cinnamylcocaine, α-truxilline, truxilline, methylecgonine, tropine, hygrine, hygroline, and cuscohygrine. These strong alkaloids are commonly used as drugs in mainstream medicine and, at times, are the object of pathological or criminal activity—the source of many personal human tragedies. , a Brazilian endemic plant used in traditional medicine.
