About cinene

Cinene, also known as limonene, is a monoterpene compound.

Its molecular formula is C10H16, and its CAS number is 138-86-3.

It is also a natural functional monoterpene. It is widely used as a flavor and fragrance additive in food. It is a colorless oily liquid with a lemon-like fragrance.

cinene has good antitussive, expectorant, and antibacterial effects. Compound cinene can be used clinically to promote choleretics, dissolve stones, promote the secretion of digestive juice and eliminate intestinal gas.

Sample requirements

Sample requirements
Sample type
Cell sample - please centrifuge after sampling, remove the medium, immediately put it in liquid nitrogen, and store it at -80℃.
Tissue sample - please put it in liquid nitrogen immediately after separation and store it at -80℃.
Sample mixed
In order to ensure the accuracy of the samples and reduce systematic errors during sampling, it is necessary to select more than 3 materials with the same condition for each sample.
※ The same condition refers to the same period, basically the same phenotype, and the same part.
Sample weight and repeat
Samples that have been lyophilized are >0.5g.
For samples with low water content, such as stems, flowers, seeds, dormant buds, etc., fresh samples >1g.
For samples with middle water content, roots and leaves (especially young leaves), fresh samples >2g.
For samples with water content >90%, if fruit (tomato, watermelon, citrus, etc.), fresh sample >5g.
It is recommended that prepare more than 6 biological replicates.
Storage and transportation
Quick-frozen preservation with liquid nitrogen can minimize the leakage time of plant samples at room temperature.
Dry ice transportation (about 3~4kg dry ice is consumed every day, please use sufficient dry ice for transportation).
There is no restriction on plant varieties. For varieties with special requirements or rare varieties, please contact our staff for more information.
