In the present work we have demonstrated that G, a natural monoterpene
present in the essential oils of several plants, significantly diminished the triglyceride and cholesterol levels in mouse blood, without exerting any effect on the animals' gain in body weight, food intake (Table 2), or liver histology (Fig.
with antichemotactic activity from Psychotria myriantha: chemotaxonomic significance.

Effects of two levels of monoterpene
blend on rumen fermentation, terpene and nutrient flows in the duodenum and milk production in dairy goats.
High antimicrobial activity of the essential oils of thyme is also characterized by a high content of monoterpenes
, such as hydrocarbons [gamma]-terpinene and [beta]-cymene .
Herbivores could not "smell out" certain monoterpenes
from an essential oil, but if a monoterpene
was predominant or overbalanced the concentration, the essential oil might provide an avoidance or deterrence effect.
They include: reduced concentrations of inhibitory monoterpenes
from roots (Janson 1993; Paavolainen et al.
The compounds most affected by fat content included the classes of monoterpene
and sesquiterpene hydrocarbons; terpenes containing oxygen; cyclopentenones; phenyl propanoids; and phenols.
For example, promising cancer drugs called monoterpenes
bind to the receptor.
The Company's lead compound is NEO100, a novel, highly purified form of the monoterpene
perillyl alcohol under development for treatment of deadly brain disease known as glioblastoma multiforme.
