This review, from William M. B. Edmands, Nigel J. Gooderham, Elaine Holmes and Stephen C. Mitchell of Imperial College London, summarises the available information regarding the amino acid derivative S-methyl-L-cysteine sulphoxide (SMCSO), which can be found in many vegetables considered beneficial to human health.
Included in the discussion:
- Its occurrence and distribution
- Its biosynthesis in plants
- Its metabolism in mammals and microorganisms
- Its chemoprotective activity; including its chemoprotective activity, anti-diabetic and cardiovascular effects
Mitchell et al. hope that this review will act as a catalyst to stimulate greater scrutiny of this important amino acid derivative, which they say has surprisingly not received as much as it should have considering its abundance and wide distribution.
