Aminopropionitrile, also known as β-aminopropionitrile (BAPN), is an organic compound with both amine and nitrile functional groups. It is an antirheumatic agent in veterinary medicine. It can cause osteolathyrism, neurolathyrism, and/or angiolathyrism.[2]

Aminopropionitrile is prepared by the reaction of ammonia with acrylonitrile.[3]

BAPN is a component of lathyrus odoratus.[4]

Lathyrism, a disease known for centuries, encompasses 2 distinct entities: a disorder of the nervous system (neurolathyrism) leading to limb paralysis, and a disorder of connective tissue, causing either bone deformity (osteolathyrism) or aortic aneurisms (angiolathyrim). BAPN causes osteolathyrism and angiolathyrism when ingested in large quantities.

Beta-amino-propionitrile (BAPN) found in lathyrus odoratus (our more common garden sweet pea plant) is thought to be responsible for osteolathyrism, which in humans is quite poorly documented.
