Isoprenoids Analysis Service

What are Isoprenoids?

Isoprenoids, also commonly referred to as terpenoids, constitute a diverse and expansive class of natural compounds ubiquitous in the biological world. At their core, isoprenoids are derived from a fundamental five-carbon building block called isoprene, which serves as the precursor for their synthesis. The term "isoprenoid" encompasses a vast array of structurally distinct molecules that play pivotal roles in various biological processes across different organisms.

The structural diversity of isoprenoids is reflected in the multitude of compounds they give rise to, ranging from simple structures like monoterpenes to complex molecules such as steroids. These compounds are integral components of essential biological entities, including plants, microbes, and even certain animals. Isoprenoids contribute to the characteristic flavors and aromas of essential oils, serve as pigments in photosynthetic organisms, and act as signaling molecules and hormones.
