A convenient method for the analysis of free L-canavanine in leguminous plants is described. Canavanine was specifically hydrolyzed to canaline and urea by the enzyme arginase (EC The resulting amino-oxy functions of canaline were measured based on their ability to bleach the yellow colour of pyridoxal 5'-phosphate. Canavanine in the seeds of Canavalia ensiformis was determined with this method.
