Disease relevance of Rhodinol


High impact information on Rhodinol

  • Experiments were carried out to construct pseudomonad strains capable of the biodegradation of certain recalcitrant branched hydrocarbons via a combination of alkane and citronellol degradative pathways [4].
  • In the case of Pseudomonas citronellolis, sensitivity to isoprenols is reduced by prior induction of the isoprenoid degradative pathway via either growth on succinate in the presence of citronellol or growth on citronellic acid [5].
  • Taken together, our results demonstrated an anticonvulsant activity of the citronellol that could be, at least in part, explained by the diminution of the action potential amplitude [2].
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa is able to grow on acyclic monoterpenes (citronellol, citronellate, geraniol and geranylate), and on other methyl-branched compounds such as leucine or isovalerate [6].
  • Utilization of geraniol is dependent on molybdenum in Pseudomonas aeruginosa: evidence for different metabolic routes for oxidation of geraniol and citronellol [7].
