This study has demonstrated that compounds known to possess lathyrogenic properties may, or may not, block the periodic acid-Schiff reaction, and that for these compounds, no correlation exists between their aldehyde blocking capacity and their ability to produce lathyrism in tadpoles. The mechanism by which those compounds produce lathyrism therefore continues to be obscure.
