General description

5-Methyl-1-hexanol, an aliphatic alcohol, can be prepared by the reduction of 5-methylhexanoic acid. It is predicted to have a fruity odor based on fuzzy partition and self organising maps (SOM) analysis data.
5-Methyl-1-hexanol is a volatile organic compound found in:
  • Alstonia boonei leaves
  • ‘Hayward′ and ‘Hort16A′ kiwifruit
  • Tuber melanosporum fruiting body

Carboxyl/cholinesterases (CCEs) are highly diversified in insects. These enzymes have a broad range of proposed functions, in neuro/developmental processes, dietary detoxification, insecticide resistance or hormone/pheromone degradation. As few functional data are available on purified or recombinant CCEs, the physiological role...
