The plantGypsophilla trichotoma Wend. has been found to contain four triterpene glycosides, which have been called “trichosides” A, B, C, and D.
Trichoside D has been isolated in the individual state. It has been shown that its aglycone is gypsogenin. The carbohydrate chain attached to the hydroxyl at C3 contains D-galactose, L-arabinose, D-xylose, and D-glucuronic acid, and the acyloside chain contains D-glucose, D-galactose, D-xylose, L-rhamnose, and D-fucose.
