 Abrus precatorius seed, Jequirity seed: The beautiful black-red seeds are very poisonous. They are used as beads in rosaries (precatorius is from the Latin '​precor',​ meaning to pray). Because their attraction they are frequently handled by small children, one chewed seed may be lethal. Toxic principle is abrin (jequiritin),​ a  lectin and hemagglutin,​ consisting of five glycoproteins - Abrus agglutinin (non-toxic, but haemagglutinator) and the four toxic abrins a-d. Unlike that, folkloristic medicinal uses are known in Asia. The decoction has been used to treat conjunctivitis,​ skin diseases, nervous diseases, headache and malaria. Said to prevent conception. Constituents:​ The seeds contain fat, reducing sugar, gallic acid, hepaphorine,​ abraline, abrin, abrine (N-Methyl-L-tryptophan,​ not to be confused with the toxalbumin abrin), campestrol, cycloartenol,​ precatorine,​ squalene, trigonelline. ​ Abrus precatorius seed, Jequirity seed: The beautiful black-red seeds are very poisonous.
