Question[edit]

Should this be represented as a zwitterion? The IUPAC name suggests so, but that wouldn't... jive with anything I've found in the literature :) Fvasconcellos (t·c) 20:41, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi, thanks mentioning this. I don't believe it's a zwitterion. It seems I misreported the IUPAC name, since the table disagreed with ChEBI's record. Corrected. Ringbang (talk) 22:42, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
OK, thanks. Fvasconcellos (t·c) 17:09, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Synthesis and Biosynthesis[edit]

Why do the Synthesis and Biosynthesis sections refer to non-existent figures? This makes me concerned that the material was copied and pasted from the Journal of Organic Chemistry and the Helvetica Chimica Acta. – Ringbang (talk) 01:46, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Is this article still contemporary?[edit]

A short google search has presented that several studies in the last few years have shown that Agaritine is not carcinogene one has even show that to the contrary Agaritine has an anti-carcinogen trait. I am not a researcher so I am asking this community to check on this information. Some german sites say that champignons, which include Agaritine, can be eaten raw because of the above reason. This article here speaks of carcinogen and mutagen. What is true? --User1973 (talk) 23:24, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
