Methods: ALCL, leukaemia and breast cancer cells, and normal peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were treated with isolated sesquiterpene
lactones and analysed for cell cycle progression, proliferation, mitochondrial activity, apoptosis, protein and mRNA expression, NF-[kappa]B and cytochrome P450 activity, 12(S)-HETE production and lymphendothelial intravasation.
Previous research with essential oils and lauraceous hosts suggests that [alpha]-copaene is the primary host attractant (kairomone), but other volatile sesquiterpenes
may contribute; potential candidates include [alpha]-cubebene, [alpha]-humulene, [beta]-caryophyllene, [delta]-cadinene, and calamenene (Hanula & Sullivan 2008; Kendra et al.
The present study found that the essential oils from Anemia hirsuta and Anemia radianna are mainly composed of monoterpene hydrocarbons, oxygenated monoterpenes, sesquiterpene
hydrocarbons and oxygenated sesquiterpenes
Poljakov collected in the Province of Khorassan (Iran) afforded, in addition to several eudesmanolides, a new type of sesquiterpene
lactone (Tehranolide) (20), with anendoperoxide group that probably has the same effect as the antimalarial agent artemisinin.

Desorbed terpenes and sesquiterpenes
from forages and cheeses.
Zealexins and kauralexins are nonvolatile, yet both are derived from volatile organic compound precursors, namely sesquiterpenes
and diterpenes, which have been widely studied in plants, including such crops as cotton, beans, and rice.
are effective against domestic and agricultural insect pests (e.
Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis identified skeletons of sesquiterpenes
alcohols in both extracts and the most abundant compounds identified, cedrol, cedrenes, and thujopsenes, were individually screened for antifungal activity.
Oxygen containing derivatives of mono- and sesquiterpenes
This compound has been isolated from Sphaeranthus indicus flower part and it is characterized as sesquiterpenes
(Rahman et al.
