Type_inhibitor Report for: Terpenoid

Comment

The terpenoids,(or isoprenoids), are a large and diverse class of naturally occurring organic chemicals derived from the 5-carbon compound isoprene, and the isoprene polymers called terpenes. Plant terpenoids are used for their aromatic qualities and pharmacological bioactivity. Terpenoids contribute to the scent of eucalyptus, the flavors of cinnamon, cloves, and ginger, the yellow color in sunflowers, and the red color in tomatoes. Well-known terpenoids include citral, menthol, camphor, salvinorin A in the plant Salvia divinorum, the cannabinoids found in cannabis, ginkgolide and bilobalide found in Ginkgo biloba, and the curcuminoids found in turmeric and mustard seed. The steroids and sterols in animals are biologically produced from terpenoid precursors
