Bilobalide is a sesquiterpenoid. It is a main constituent of the terpenoids found in Ginkgo leaves. It also exists in minor amounts in the roots. Bilobalide and ginkgolide both have very similar biosynthesis pathway. Bilobalide is formed by partially degraded from ginkgoglide. Bilibalide is derived from geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate (GGPP), which is formed by addition of farnesyl pyrophosphate (FPP) to isopentenyl pyrophosphate (IPP) unit, to form a C15 sesquiterpene. Such formation went through the mevalonate pathway (MVA) and methylerythritol phosphate MEP pathway.
