Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract Dracunculus vulgaris Schott is only one taxon of the genus Dracunculus (Araceae ) in Turkey. The tubers and the fruits with the seeds of D . vulgaris have long been in use for the treatment of rheumatism and hemorrhoids, respectively. The fatty acid composition of D . vulgaris seeds have been analyzed as their methyl esters by GC and GC-mass spectrometry. C16:0, C16:1n-7, C18:1n-9, C18:1n-7 (cis -vaccenic acid), C18:2n-6 and 13-phenyl tridecanoic acids were found to be the main components in the seed oil.
