A new guanidino amine has been isolated from Lathyrus sativus seedlings and chararterized as homoagmatine on the basis of various physico-chemical criteria including IR spectrum and comparison with that chemically synthesized. Homoagmatine is accumulated in the embryos axis while its precursor, homoarginine, is lost from the cotyledons. However, there was a progressive increase in homoarginine content of the embryo axis during development. Since the amine content of the whole seedlings corresponded to nearly 20-25 % of net decrease in homoarginine levels, it is concluded that the catabolism of homoarginine through homoagmatine represents a major pathway of metabolism of the amino acid.
