Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to esculin sodium (CAS RN 96997-92-1) and methylesculin (CAS RN 20186-29-2). Esculin (also known as aesculin) belongs to the family of glycosyl compounds. These are carbohydrate derivatives in which a sugar group is bonded through its anomeric carbon A to another group via a C-, S-, N-, O-, or Se- glycosidic bond. It is found in barley and is also a glucoside that naturally occurs in the horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum), California Buckeye (Aesculus californica), and in daphnin (the dark green resin of Daphne mezereum). As a medication, esculin is sometimes used as a vasoprotective agent. Esculin is also used in a microbiology laboratory to aid in the identification of bacterial species (especially Enterococci and Listeria), as all strains of Group D Streptococci hydrolyze esculin in 40% bile.
