An integrated procedure for the extraction of bacterial isoprenoid quinines and polar lipids.
The function of plastid (apicoplast) in Apicomplexa is unclear, but many studies suggested its roles in the biosynthesis of fatty acids, haem, isoprenoids, and Fe-S cluster, based on the analysis of genome sequence.

A pseudo homologous series of aryl isoprenoids were revealed from mass chromatograms of m/z 133 in the Upper Permian Dalong Fm and some Silurian source rocks (samples HYS-6, HYS-8, HYS-11, and TJ-7-104, but not from Guanba, Shiniulan, and ZB21, Figure 3 and Table 1).
The acyclic isoprene alkanes are the paraffins composed of isoprenoid structural units.
DEINOCHEM first targets isoprenoids, which constitute one of the families of the most diverse natural substances (over 22,000 isoprenoid compounds are listed to date).
The methodology applied to estimate isoprenoid emissions on a regional scale contributes to the understanding of carbon exchange between biosphere and atmosphere.
The intermediates GPP, FPP and GGPP are catalyzed by the corresponding terpene synthase to produce all isoprenoid end products (Patra et al., 2013; Vranova et al., 2013).
Fatty-acid synthesis was significantly inhibited only at the highest dose of G, whereas nonsaponifiable-lipid synthesis was substantially reduced at all three doses of the isoprenoid (Fig.

Several candidate plant growth controllers are known but the isoprenoid compound abscisic acid (ABA; 5-(1-Hydroxy-2,6,6-trimethyl-4oxo-2-cyclohexen-1-yl)-3-methyl-2,4-pentanedienoic acid) seemed a particularly strong candidate for the hypothesized growth inhibiting substance as it is a known plant growth inhibitor.
