(+)-cis-Sabinene hydrate and (+)-trans-sabinene hydrate are the main monoterpenes found in marjoram (Origanum majorana), but can also be found in other Origanum species as well, as in e.g. Melaleuca alternifolia. The synthesis of sabinene hydrate in marjoram (Origanum majorana) is performed by sabinene hydrate synthase. It is claimed, that both, (+)-cis- and (+)-trans-sabinene hydrate are produced by the same enzyme in an exact ratio of 10:1. To verify this in vitro result in vivo, we analysed… CONTINUE READING
