About the structure and biological function of C15T

Structure. Sesquiterpenes (C15 isoprenoids, C15T) belong to the group of isoprenoids within the prenol lipids category. Their structure is based on a linear chain or rings of three isoprene units, the five-carbon building block of prenol lipids. C15Ts may further encompass double bonds and a variety of substituents.

Function. Sesquiterpenes are primarily found in higher plants, fungi, and invertebrates. The C15T farnesyl-pyrophosphate is a biosynthetic branch point in the biosynthesis of more complex isoprenoids and sterol lipids such as cholesterol. Due to their structural diversity, sesquiterpenes exhibit a wide range of biological activities. Anti- and pro-oxidant properties, anti-inflammatory effects, and antiviral activities are attributed to different C15 isoprenoids.
