Literature References: Cardiac glycoside from Digitalis lanata Ehrk., Scrophulariaceae: Murphy, J. Am. Pharm. Assoc. Sci. Ed. 44, 719 (1955); Angliker et al., Ann. 607, 131 (1957); von Wartburg et al., Experientia 14, 439 (1958). Acid hydrolysis yields 1 mol diginatigenin + 3 mols D-digitoxose. The sugar residue is attached to the hydroxyl group at C-3 of the aglycon.
