Chemical Information
FooDB NameIsopentyl alcohol
DescriptionIsopentyl alcohol is one of several isomers of amyl alcohol. It is a by-product of gut microbial fermentation (PMID: 17452087). It can be produced by 3-methylbutanal reductase (EC 1.1.1.265) from 3 methylbutanal. Isopentyl alcohol is the major higher chain alcohol in alcoholic beverages and is present in cider, mead, beer, wine, and spirits to varying degrees, being obtained by the fermentation of starches. Isopentanol has been shown to induce expression of CYP3A and CYP2E1 in human liver (PMID: 7574728). Isopentyl alcohol can also be found in many foods, some of which are chinese cabbage, white cabbage, elliott's blueberry, and pasta. It can be used as a flavouring agent.
