• synthases
  • These three acyclic prenyl diphosphates serve as the immediate precursors of the corresponding monoterpenoid (C 10 ), sesquiterpenoid (C 15 ), and diterpenoid (C 20 ) classes, to which they are converted by a very large group of enzymes called the terpene (terpenoid) synthases. (genetics.org)
  • compounds
  • And earlier this year, Lagunitas rolled out a limited run of Supercritical, an ale brewed with Cannabis terpenes , aromatic compounds of fragrant oils from the cannabis plant that give it distinctive flavors and aromatics. (merriam-webster.com)
  • Since terpenes are most representative of carbocyclic compounds found in nature and characterized by intricate assays of ring structures, they are the most attractive and challenging targets for synthesis and a testing ground for defining the limitation of annulation techniques. (wiley.com)
  • The classical unity of the terpene group of compounds is given by their simple composition (limited to the three basic organogenic elements) and by the uniformity of the rules governing their structure. (springer.com)
  • Several of the new compounds presented better anti-inflammatory effect and lower cytotoxicity than the parent terpenes. (mdpi.com)
  • Terpenes (/ˈtɜːrpiːn/) are a large and diverse class of organic compounds, produced by a variety of plants, particularly conifers, and by some insects such as termites or swallowtail butterflies, which emit terpenes from their osmeteria. (wikipedia.org)
  • Terpenes are also major constituents of Cannabis sativa plants, which contain at least 120 identified compounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • terpenoid
  • Three distinct classes of terpene synthase genes were discerned, from which assumed patterns of sequential intron loss and the loss of an unusual internal sequence element suggest that the ancestral terpenoid synthase gene resembled a contemporary conifer diterpene synthase gene in containing at least 12 introns and 13 exons of conserved size.

  • derivatives
  • The aim of the study was to assess changes in the activity of anti-inflammatory terpenes from Chilean medicinal plants after the formation of derivatives incorporating synthetic anti-inflammatory agents. (mdpi.com)
  • structural
  • This, together with the great structural diversity and ubiquity of occurrence, has made the terpenes the object of an immense amount of research, often of far-reaching theoretical implications and great practical interest. (springer.com)
  • roles
  • In addition to their roles as end-products in many organisms, terpenes are also major biosynthetic building blocks within nearly every living creature. (wikipedia.org)

  • activity
  • The antimicrobial activity of the essential oil of thyme is apparently related to its terpenes type components such as, myrcene, camphene and pcymene (Table I), since there is a relationship between the chemical structures of the most abundant oils and their antimicrobial activities.
