What are Bufanolides?

Bufanolides are a type of steroid. Bufanolides are found mostly as cardiac glycoside aglycones, meaning that bufanolides are bound with sugars to form glycosides (specifically, cardiac glycosides). [1]

Health Safety

Bufanolides are toxic, both as steroids and glycoside aglycones. [1]


Derivatives are named replacing the suffix -anolide with -enolide, -adienolide etc. [1]
