Metabolite Identification
Common Name(-)-beta-Pinene
Description(-)-beta-Pinene, also known as (1S,5S)-b-pinene or L-b-pinene, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as bicyclic monoterpenoids. These are monoterpenoids containing exactly 2 rings, which are fused to each other. Thus, (-)-beta-pinene is considered to be an isoprenoid lipid molecule (-)-beta-Pinene exists as a solid and is considered to be practically insoluble (in water) and relatively neutral (-)-beta-Pinene has been primarily detected in feces. Within the cell, (-)-beta-pinene is primarily located in the membrane (predicted from logP) and cytoplasm (-)-beta-Pinene is a dry, fresh, and green tasting compound that can be found in almond, common sage, hyssop, and sweet bay. This makes (-)-beta-pinene a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products.
