Product Name: Phosphorylcholine-Farnesol
IUPAC Name: 2-(trimethylammonio)ethyl ((2E,6E)-3,7,11-trimethyldodeca-2,6,10-trien-1-yl) phosphate,
Description: Phosphorylcholine (PC) proved to be the immunomodulatory molecule. Immune regulation functions of some helminthes are attributed to the phosphorylcholine (PC) moiety. Farnesol, an acyclic sesquiterpene alcohol, is predominantly found in essential oils of various plants in nature. Farnesol is involved in the regulation of various physiological processes including filamentation, biofilm development, drug efflux, and apoptosis, etc. Farnesol and its derivatives/ analogues have also been reported to exhibit anti-biofilm, anti-cancer, anti-tumor and fungicidal properties. Farnesol exhibited antibacterial activity against S. aureus and the effects were dependent on the concentration of farnesol. Farnesol suppressed the growth of S. aureus FDA209P for more than 48 h at concentrations of 10 μg mL-1 and higher.
