Mass Spectrometric Detection of New Betalains in Mammillaria Flowers

Title variants
Languages of publication
Betacyanins are natural, red-violet betalain pigments which can be found in plenty of plants of the Cactaceae family. The Mammillaria is the widest genus of the Cactaceae family of which fruit was examined for betacyanins contents. As a result of the investigation, a new pigment structure, mammillarinin, was identified. Heretofore, no betacyanins of Mammillaria coronata flowers has been extensively studied. In this report, the results of betacyanin analysis by LC-DAD-ESI-MS/MS in the flower extract are presented.
