The monoterpene β-myrcene has been widely used in cosmetics, food and beverages, and it is normally found in essential oil from citrus fruit. The aim of this study was to investigate the anti-ulcer effects of β-myrcene on experimental models of...

The conversion of beta-myrcene to the furanoid flavour compound perillene by Pleurotus ostreatus was investigated using trideutero beta-myrcene, trideutero alpha-(Z)-acaridiol and non-labeled 1,2- and 3,10-epoxy-beta-myrcene, alpha,alpha-acarilactol, and perillene as substrates. Myrcene diols were formed from the cleavage of myrcene epoxides...

We studied the effects of water stress, fertilization and time course on foliar volatile terpene emission rates by Quercus ilex and Pinus halepensis in a garden experiment. The terpenes mostly emitted by both species were alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, beta-myrcene and Delta(3)-carene....

Beta-myrcene, a monoterpene widely used as a fragrance and flavoring additive, also possesses analgesic, anti-mutagenic, and tyrosinase inhibitory properties. In order to get insights into the molecular mechanisms underlying the ability of Pseudomonas sp. M1 to catabolize beta-myrcene, an expression...
