Quantative estimation of hydrocyanic acid (HCN) in some cyanogenic plants with the help of microbial glycosidase enzyme

Abstract
Cyanogenic plants are those plants which are able to synthesize cyanogenic glycosides. These glycosides when enzymatically hydrolyzed then they release Prussic acid. This is known to be a defence mechanism of plants against microbes and other invasions. In most of the cases when the microbes produces B-glycosidase enzymes for invasion into the plant tissue, the cyanogenic glycoside present in the plant is hydrolyzed with the release of HCN which may kill the pathogen. In the present study quantative estimation of prussic acid is being reported in 10 Angiospermic plants is done.
