Menaquinones are classified according to the length of their aliphatic side chain and are designated as MK-n, where n stands for the number of isoprenoid
residues in that chain."
Mixtures containing chloroform and methanol have shown to provide efficient extraction of isoprenoid
quinone and polar lipids, and the procedure described by Minnikin and others (1984) was used for the extraction of bacterial polar lipids and isoprenoid
Ferredoxin (Fd) and Fd-NADP+ reductase (FNR) in apicoplast constitute a redox system [11,12] that is homologous to those of plant chloroplast and algae, especially green and red algae [8, 13].The involvement of apicoplast Fd has been indicated in the reactions of an Fe-S cluster assembly  and isoprenoid
biosynthesis pathways [10, 15], fatty acid desaturation , and heme oxygenation .
This subset, termed [gamma]2[delta]9 T cells, recognizes phosphoantigens, phosphorylated nonpeptidic metabolic intermediates of the isoprenoid
biosynthesis  in both invading microbes and the body's own cells, in an MHC-unrestricted manner [4, 6].
Furthermore a isoprenoid
, ([+ or -])-abscisic acid (Sigma-Aldrich, Poznan, Poland), was used as a standard.
The anti-inflammatory impact of simvastatin is highlighted through its ability to decrease the production of significant isoprenoid
intermediates, through which the production of L-mevalonic acid is inhibited.
Mevalonate is the precursor not only of cholesterol but also of many non-steroidal- isoprenoid
Early models described "mevalonate shunting" from isoprenoid
Correlation of Solid Bitumen with Kerogen Based on Aryl Isoprenoid
Distribution and [delta][sup.34]S Values.
By inhibiting the rate-limiting enzyme in the cholesterol biosynthesis pathway (conversion of hydroxymethylglutaryl CoA to mevalonate), they also prevent the formation of isoprenoid
intermediaries like isopentenyl-pyrophosphate, dimethylallyl-pyrophosphate, geranyl-pyrophosphate, and farnesylpyrophosphate.

alkanes, Steranes, and Terpanes are mainly used as saturated hydrocarbon biomarker compounds.
