Abstract :

Amatoxins commonly found in Amanita phalloides is the main constituents of toxins present in most toxic mushroom specimens containing α–amanitin, β–amanitin, γ –amanitin, ε–amanitin, amanin, amaninamide, amanullin, amanullinic acid, and proamanullin. RP–HPLC analysis of toxins Chromatography: The method of Ismail Yilmaz et. al, is followed using C18 (Agilent Technologies) at UV detection 303nm for amatoxins and 291nm for phallotoxins. The mobile phase in isocratic pump with a flow rate of 1ml/min consisting of 0.05M ammonium acetate (pH 5.5 with acetic acid) and acetonitrile (90:10v/v). The geographical variations determine the content of the toxins and it ings a landmark to create awareness to the community for such mushroom specimens. We hope that analyzing the toxin content in the coming years will be of great service to the Physician and the community as well.
