15 alpha-hydroxy-2-[[2-o-)3-methyl-1-oxobutyl)-3,4-di-o-sulfo-alpha-d-glucopyranosyl]oxy]-19-norkaur-16-en-18-oic acid dipotassium salt. A toxic glycoside from atractylis gummifera which inhibits the transfer of ADP and ATP across the mitochondrial membrane by a specific carrier. Also inhibits oxidative phosphorylation of externally added ADP in isolated mitochondria. Chemical name: 19-Norkaur-16-en-18-oic acid, 15-hydroxy-2-((2-O-(3-methyl-1-oxobutyl)-3,4-di-O-sulfo-beta-D-glucopyranosyl)oxy)-, dipotassium salt, (2beta,4alpha,15alpha)-
