Naturally new aziridine derivative
A number of non-protein amino acid derivatives are found in the natural mushrooms, and a few of them are toxic for a human. We analysed the water soluble low molecular weight compounds of the fruit bodies of Pleurocybella porrigens
("Sugihiratake" in Japanese, angel's wings in English) using a high resolution 1H NMR spectroscopy.
An aziridine derivative; 3,3-Dimethylaziridine-2-carboxylic acid (1) from the fruit body of mushroom P. porrigens
presumed to be a cause of acute encephalopathy
happened in Japan at 2004.

Next, we show the abstract which is presented in "Abstracts of Papers Presented at the 50th Anniversary Meeting of the Mycological Societty of Japan (June 3-4, 2006, Chiba, Japan)".
