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...

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...
