J Pharm Sci. 1977 Apr;66(4):593-4. doi: 10.1002/jps.2600660437.

Abstract

Glaucium oxylobum Boiss and Buhse, population Ab-Ali, was demonstrated to contain one major alkaloid, glaucine (0.7%), and two minor alkaloids, O-methylatheroline and predicentrine, in the aerial parts. The root also contains protopine. Glaucine and O-methylatheroline were detected for the first time in this species, and predicentrine was detected for the first time in the Glaucium genus.
