Molecular Weight: 575.70
Percent Composition: C 66.76%, H 7.18%, N 12.16%, O 13.90%
Literature References: Two closely related isomers of the ergotoxine group which differ in the peptide portion of the molecule; a-ergocryptine yielding L-leucine upon hydrolysis, b-ergocryptine yielding L-isoleucine. The ergocryptine discussed in the literature prior to 1967 is now referred to as a-ergocryptine. Isoln from ergot: Stoll, Hofmann, Helv. Chim. Acta 26, 1570 (1943).
