These latter undergo rearrangement to form a mixture of sulfur-containing compounds (S-compounds) including thiosulfinates, thiosulfonates, and mono-, di-, and trisulfides
as well as specific compounds such as thiopropanal S-oxide, the lachrymatory or tear factor, all responsible for the typical flavour of onions .

attenuates carbon tetrachloride-caused liver injury and fibrogenesis and reduces hepatic oxidative stress in rats," Naunyn-Schmiedebergs Archives of Pharmacology, vol.
It was found that some important odorous sulfides such as di-2-propenyl trisulfide
and dimethyl tetrasulfide were almost removed (>95%) in the aromagram of T2.
Bioactivities ofmethyl allyl disulfide and diallyl trisulfide
from essential oil of garlic to two species of stored-product pests, Sitophilus zeamais (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) and Tribolium castaneum (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae).
(139) initially reported that GSSH generated from glutathione trisulfide
reduces cytochrome c more efficiently than GSH and that cysteine persulfide has similar activity.
In male Syrian golden hamsters arsenic trisulfide
and calcium arsenate intoxication resulted pneumonia metaplastic ossification and emphysema in lungs along with adenoma and malignant tumors (Goran and Nils 2004).
This type of manure emitted two sulfide compounds (dimethyl disulfide and dimethyl trisulfide
) at significantly higher levels than other manures in the study--sometimes as much as 8 times more.
Allium sativum (garlic) belongs to lily family contains sulphur-containing compounds: allicin diallyl disulfide diallyl trisulfide
Eun-Ryeong Hahm, Ph.D., will discuss how diallyl trisulfide
, an oil-soluble molecule created by chewing of allium vegetables, such as garlic, decreases levels of the estrogen receptor-alpha protein in breast cancer cells and inhibits growth of breast cancer stem cells by decreasing levels of two other proteins.
, another component of garlic has been shown to demonstrate protective effect against vascular endothelial impairment (Liu et al., 2014).
Moreover, attention now is drawn to the compounds dimethyl trisulfide
(DMTS), [beta]-cyclocitral, and [beta]-ionone, which are also associated with algal blooms caused by eutrophication progress [6-9], and they often simultaneously break out in environmental waters [4, 10].
, contain in garlic oil, may help release protective compounds to the heart after heart attack, during cardiac surgery, or as a treatment for heart failure.
