Abstract

A novel monoterpene, (1S, 2S, 6S)-(+)-l,6-epoxy-4(8)-/7-menthen-2-ol, was isolated from an elicitor-treated cell culture of Cupressus lusitanica (Mexican cypress). Ten known monoterpenes - limonene, myrcene, β-ocimene, sabinene, terpinolene, 4-terpineol, α-terpineol, 4(8)-p-menthen-l,2-diol, 4-hydroxyphellandric acid methylester and β-thujaplicin methylether - were also identified. Regioselective metabolisms of monoterpenes were observed in this culture.
