Abstract

Glycoside fractions from ten holothurians were isolated and subjected to a comparative examination. All ten species contained holothurians A. Except Vglorhurio edulis and Havelockia versicolor all other species were found to contain holothurin B. The acid hydrolysis of glycoside fractions of all species examined yielded mainly two genins (22, 25 - epoxy - 7. 9 (11) holostadien-3-17-diol and its deoxvanalogue)d four sugars namely glucose, xylose. 3-0-methyl glucose agd quinovoce.
