Blockade of IL-6 secretion pathway by the sesquiterpenoid
Viridiflorol (11), the only evaluated sesquiterpenoid
, was less active than the triterpenoids 2-10 on its ability to control elastase activity of P.
The story of the sesquiterpenoid
juvabiones will serve to illustrate this point.
brasilamides A-D (1-4) have been isolated from cultures of the plant endophytic fungus Paraconiothyrium brasiliense.
Furthermore, viridiflorol, the most abundant sesquiterpenoid
in the oil of North-central Nigerian grown V.
Acorafuran is a sesquiterpenoid
found in Calamus oil (Pandy et al.
constituents were expressed as percentages from peak area normalization, assuming that the total injection was 100% of 10-100 [micro]g of essential oil.
Both [alpha]-santalol and sandalwood oil belonging to the sesquiterpenoid
class of phytoconstituents, might act as insulin secretagogues on surviving ([beta]-cells of Islets of Langerhans to release more insulin to reduce the concentration of blood glucose.
The active fraction was identified as a sesquiterpenoid
called as kessyl alcohol and its activity compared favorably to that of imipramine (Oshimaand Matsuoka 1995).
A variety of constituents are present in TC plant belonging to different classes such as alkaloids, diterpenoid lactones, glycosides, steroids, sesquiterpenoid
Accumulation of sesquiterpenoid
cyclohexenone derivatives induced by an arbuscular mycor-rhizal fungus in members of the Poaceae.
Several aromatic hydrocarbons, such as cadalene derived from sesquiterpenoids
, and 1,2,5-TMNr and 1,2,5,6-TeMNr whose precursors were derived from higher plants, are indicative of general or more specific higher plant source [16, 17].
