15785 (−)-Menthol puriss., meets analytical specification of Ph. Eur., BP, USP, 98.0-102.0%  
22075 (−)-trans-Caryophyllene ≥98.5% (sum of enantiomers, GC)  
83073 (+)-α-Terpineol analytical standard  
62120 (R)-(+)-Limonene purum, ≥96.0% (sum of enantiomers, GC)  
41043 2,3-Oxidosqualene ≥92.0% (HPLC) 2,3-Oxidosqualene is a substrate of the 2,3-oxidosqualene cyclase lanosterol synthase. 2,3-oxidosqualene cyclase has been shown to be suppressed by a high fat diet and high levels of cholesterol.
94967 2-cis,6-trans-Farnesol ≥95.0% (GC) 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. 2-cis,6-trans-Farnesol is a metabolite in the sesquiterpenoid and triterpenoid biosynthesis, a reactant of farnesol 2-isomerase (EC: 5.2.1.9)
94966 2-trans,6-cis-Farnesol ≥95.0% (GC) 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.
41111 Ajmalicine ≥98.0% (HPLC) Metabolite in the indole alkaloid biosynthesis (serpentine production); found naturally in various plants such as Rauwolfia spp., Catharanthus roseus, and Mitragyna speciosa. It shows antimicrobial activity, and is used as an anti-hypertensive and sedative.
F6892 Farnesyl pyrophosphate ammonium salt methanol:ammonia solution, ≥95% (TLC) Isoprenoid from the intracellular mevalonate pathway used for prenylation of several low molecular mass G proteins, including Ras.
163333 Geraniol 98%  
56901 Geranyl monophosphate lithium salt ≥95.0% (TLC)  
G6772 Geranyl pyrophosphate ammonium salt 1 mg/mL in methanol (:aqueous 10 mM NH4OH (7:3)), ≥95% (TLC) Intermediate in terpene biosynthesis
76532 Geranyl pyrophosphate lithium salt ≥95.0% (TLC) Metabolite in monoterpenoid biosynthesis, substrate for monoterpene synthases.
G3278 Geranylgeraniol ≥85% (GC) As the pyrophosphate, the metabolic precursor of all diterpenes. Screening in vitro shows this to be a potent and selective agent against Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
G6025 Geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate ammonium salt solution, ≥95% (TLC), ~1 mg/mL in methanol: NH4OH (7:3) Isoprenoid from the intracellular mevalonate pathway used for prenylation of several low molecular weight G proteins, including Ras. Intermediate in terpene biosynthesis.
L9879 Lycopene ≥90%, from tomato Antioxidant micronutrient of tomatoes associated with decreased risk for cancer and cardiovascular disease. Enhances gap juction communication between cells via upregulation of connexin 43 and reduces proliferation of cancer cells in culture. Inhibits cholesterol synthesis and enhances low-density lipoprotein degradation.
18577 Neryl monophosphate lithium salt ≥95.0% (TLC) Monoterpene phosphate
12436 Neryl pyrophosphate lithium salt ≥95.0% (TLC) Metabolite, substrate for monoterpene synthase.
80191 Phytol technical, mixture of isomers (~2/1: trans/cis), ≥90% (sum of enantiomers, GC)  
53675 α-Humulene ≥96.0% (GC)  
22040 β-Carotene ≥97.0% (UV) The most important of the provitamins A, β-carotene can be classified as an antioxidant due to its inhibition of radical initiated peroxidation in vitro. However, in vivo it appears to act either as an antioxidant or a prooxidant depending on cellular environment. It reduces the incidence of many cancers, but enhances lung cancer incidence in smokers.
80720 cis,cis-Farnesol ≥95.0% (GC) 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.
72180 cis-Nerolidol ≥96.0% (GC)  
277541 trans,trans-Farnesol 96%  
91356 trans,trans-Farnesyl monophosphate ammonium salt ≥95.0% (TLC) Farnesyl monophosphate is a metabolite in terpenoid backbone biosynthesis. It was shown to activate PPARalpha and PPARbeta/delta reporter gene expression, indicating new potential roles for the oligoprenyl phosphates as potential endogenous modulators of LPA targets.
44270 trans,trans-Farnesyl pyrophosphate ammonium salt ≥95.0% (HPLC) Farnesyl pyrophosphate is a key intermediate in the biosynthesis of more complex sesquiterpenoids, higher terpenoids, and steroids and different biological functions have been discovered for FPP and the corresponding alcohol farnesol. FPP plays an important role in the posttranslational processing of Ras proteins. Mutated forms of Ras are associated with human cancer and are therefore investigated in cancer research.
