Cytotoxic compound that causes oxidative base damage to nuclear DNAAlloxan monohydrate is used as a precursor to prepare purple dye murexide. It is also used in research models to induce diabetes and destroy beta cells. Further, it is a strong oxidizing agent and it forms a hemiacetal with its reduced reaction product dialuric acid.
