Taxiphyllin (1), l-asparagine, 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde and β-sitosterol are identified as the main extractives of the shoots of Dendrocalamus giganteus and D. hamiltonii. An analysis of the free amino acids is presented and the administration of taxiphyllin-[1-14C] to the inner leaves of a bamboo shoot yielding labelled asparagine described. © 1977.
