Chemical composition

Quercetin-3-sulfate 3'-sulfotransferase is an enzyme that uses 3'-phosphoadenylyl sulfate and quercetin 3-sulfate to produce adenosine 3',5'-bisphosphate and quercetin 3,3'-bissulfate. The enzyme can be found in F. chlorifolia.

Ombuin 3-sulfate, the sulfate conjugate of ombuin, can be isolated from F. chlorifolia.
