Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Farnesol is an acyclic sesquiterpene alcohol, with four possible isomers, the E/E-isomer being the most common in nature. It was found to have different biological functions, for example to act as a quorum-sensing molecule to suppress filamentation in the fungus Candida albicans; and to have antibacterial effects against Staphylococcus aureus, including promotion of potassium ion leakage. Its derivatives are involved in the a-factor mating peptide of the dodecapeptide pheromone found in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The biological activity of farnesol and FPP analogues are investigated in cancer research.
